Nigeria’s U-18 and U-20 male handball teams, Friday, jetted out of the country for the International Handball Federation, IHF Trophy Continental Championship which will hold in Congo Brazzaville from January 16th to 20th, 2023.
The teams have been training in Lagos for over two weeks for the competition under the watchful eyes of their Coaches Emeka Nnamani and Fidelis Obi.
The teams qualified for the continental championship after winning both the under 18 and 20 categories of the IHF Challenge Trophy for Africa Zone 3 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
