Qatar vs Argentina Kick Off Time

Event details:
NAME: Qatar vs Argentina
DATE: 23 Jan 2023
TIME: 2:30:00 PM
VENUE: Katowice, Poland



Qatar and Argentina will open the last day in Katowice in a fight to not finish last. Both sides have only one victory at the 28th IHF Men’s World Championship, and it is to be expected that they will try to say farewell to the competition with a win.

The Asian side started with a good performance against Germany, defeated Algeria, only to be overrun by Serbia. In the main round, Qatar had little luck, as they faced two much stronger teams.



Norway outclassed them by 30:17, but against the Netherlands the Qatari players showed their true ability and were in the lead for a good amount of time, only to see a win slip through their hands in the last minutes of the match.



Qatar will try to repeat the same performance against Argentina, who did not have an easy path at the World Championship. Having to face the Netherlands and Norway already in the group phase, to continue with Germany and Serbia in the main round, Argentina needed to show the play and strength they had at the previous competitions.

With their leader Diego Simonet, a top scorer with 26 goals so far, they will try to snatch the first win after defeating North Macedonia in Group F.

Qatar and Argentina have played nine times so far, four at the World Championship since their first encounter at Spain 2013 and the score is tied – two wins for both sides.
