Brazil close to clinch Four Nations double

Brazil close to clinch Four Nations double

The Four Nations trophy might be with Brazil once more. In order to do so, the South Americans must beat Tunisia this Saturday. The task however is not easy. The opponent is one of the top Handball schools in Africa, won nine continental championships and placed fourth in the 2005 World Championship.

Both teams are undefeated so far but the Brazilians have an advantage on the goal difference, 24 to 8. The tournament is being played on a round robin system. “This game is going to be the final, given the results. Tunisia is a very traditional and skilled team and will play in a 5-1 defensive, presenting us with difficulty”, said coach Jordi Ribera.

“Brazil has a great roster and plays really well against top teams. We have a young but talented team. It will be a good match”, said Tunisian coach Sghir Mohamed Ali.

Kickoff is at 11:00am local time, right after Cuba-Chile.

In the first Four Nations tournament, the Brazilians beat their old time rivals Argentina to lift the trophy.
