It is worth mentioning that the Czech Republic officially withdrew from participation in the 27th IHF Men’s World Championship on Tuesday
This decision came as a consequence of several positive results after the obligatory COVID-19 tests before the departure to Egypt.
According to the COVID-19-Related Regulations for the 2021 IHF Men’s World Championship in Egypt, article A. Non-appearance/Non-participation, the first substitute nation – North Macedonia – have been invited to take part.
“The list of substitute nations was created in accordance with the performance criteria of the qualification event of the continent of the reigning world champion, which is Europe,” IHF’s official website reported.
North Macedonia have been nominated as the first substitute nation due to their 15th-place finish at the Men’s EHF EURO 2020.
Yehia Elderaa has been the TOP scorer and MVP of the match with 6 goals.
