The U-18 and U-20 national handball teams of Nigeria on Saturday emerged champions of the International Handball Federation, IHF Trophy Tournament for Africa Zone 3 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

The Ivorians had qualified for the finals in the U18 Cadet and U20 Junior categories of the 2022 IHF Trophy challenge the day before scaling their their foes in the semi-finals in a convincing fashions.

In the U18 Cadets category, Cote d'Ivoire beat Benin by 34 to 26. While the other match gave rise to a difficult victory for Nigeria over Niger by 29 to 26, just as the Ivorians defeated Niger by 34 to 28.

In the other confrontation, Nigeria defeated Burkina Faso by 39 to 26, before they shattered the Ivorian dream to claim a double triumph on the evening of November 26, 2022 at the Palais des Sports de Treichville in Abidjan.
