Nigeria’s Senior male and female handball teams made light work of Burkina Faso in their quest to qualify for the 2019 All Africa Games with emphatic victories over hosts Burkina Faso at Ouagadougou. 

In the male category, Nigeria beat Burkina Faso 25-21 with a team comprising of some of the players that participated in the just concluded IHF International Trophy Challenge in Kosovo. 

Nigeria’s female team were even more ruthless in their approach as they inflicted a 34-29 victory over the Burkina Faso women team.

Both male and female Nigerian handball teams will seek to maintain their winning streak in the competition as the former face Benin Republic in the male game while the female team faces Burkina Faso again tomorrow.

The competition acts as a qualifier for the All Africa Games holding in Morocco later this year.
