The Nigeria national handball team, on Sunday, defeated DR Congo in their final warm match ahead of the 2020 Africa Nations Cup in Tunisia.
The team had previously lost to Morocco and Tunisian top-flight side Olympique Sulayman before scoring a victory over Cameroon in their last three warmups but made it two wins on the bounce with a 25-21 win over DR Congo in Tunis.
The morale-boosting victory sees the coach Salami Sulu Rafiu tutored side end their preparations on a positive note and should infuse the team with much-needed confidence ahead of their tournament opener against Angola in Group B on 16 January.
Nigeria will also face Gabon and Libya in Group B at the championship which will hold from 16 to 26 January and also doubles as a qualifying tournament for the 2021 World Cup.
