Nigeria records low performance at ITTF WTTC

Posted : 21 February 2024

From all the African teams competing at the ongoing ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships, Egypt's women are the best-performing team, having won two out of the three matches played so far. Their last group match will be against Iran today.

After beating the Czech Republic 3-0, the Dina Meshref-inspired side fell 3-0 to France. On Monday, February 19, they overwhelmed Ukraine 3-1, positioning themselves for a place in the knockout round of the tournament.

However, their men's team was not as fortunate, losing two of their group matches against Romania and Portugal. Still, they remained hopeful of making it to the knockout stage with matches against Thailand and Iran.

A depleted Nigerian men's team will play for pride when they face the Czech Republic on today, Tuesday, having lost to Japan, Chinese Taipei, and Madagascar in the absence of their captain Quadri Aruna, who fell ill a few days before the championships commenced.

They also suffered an unexpected defeat at the hands of Madagascar, automatically ruling them out of contention for the second round of the competition.

Like their male counterparts, Nigeria's women's team has tasted defeat in all their matches, losing to Mexico, Germany, and Slovakia. Their last group match on Tuesday, February 20, is against Poland.

Algeria's men and women teams were without a win in all their matches, as well as South Africa, who is yet to record a win in their group matches.
