The young lads from the land of the Pharaohs announced their intention of annexing one of the two places reserved for Africa in the FIH Junior World Cup scheduled for 2013 with an emphatic 14-1 scorching of Zimbabwe. Egypt outplayed and outclassed their opponents from push off and went up 5-1 at half-time.
Egypt came back stronger from the halftime break and completed the route in the second half to go top of the Men’s League Table on day 1.
In the other men’s match, Ghana was too strong for Kenya taking them apart 6-0. The Ghanaians, who were wasteful in taking the numerous chances they created, led 3-0 at halftime.
South Africa sat out on day one of the competition and watched with intensity as Egypt and Ghana went on the rampage and took their opponents apart.
In the women’s competition, Kenya took on Zimbabwe beating them 2-0 while Ghana struggled to brush off Namibia 1-0.
Day 2 will see both South African teams in action and potentially a large crowd watching. In the men’s competition, Egypt will seek to demolish Kenya to stay on track while South Africa will seek to initiate their quest for honors with a handsome win over Zimbabwe. Ghana will sit out on the day and keep an eye on both South Africa and Egypt.
The women’s competition will see Ghana play Zimbabwe and South Africa will attempt to add to the misery of Namibia. Kenya will sit out on the day and watch proceedings from the stands.
