Cape Verde pull out from World Championship in Egypt due to COVID-19

Cape Verde has become the third team to withdraw from the men’s world handball championships because of coronavirus cases.

The International Handball Federation says the African island nation was unable to field the minimum number of 10 players. Cape Verde already forfeited a preliminary round game to Germany on Sunday and will now be classified 32nd and last in the competition.

The IHF said Saturday that two of Cape Verde’s 11 players had tested positive.

The United States and the Czech Republic withdrew because of coronavirus cases in their squads before the tournament began and were replaced by other teams.
