KUWAIT, July 17 (KUNA) — Kuwait national team handball player, Fahad Al-Hajri, said that being awarded top scorer title in World University Handball Championship, which recently concluded in the Brazilian city of Blumenau, was the result of the players’ cooperation.
“Such efforts reflected Kuwait’s sublime reputation in this field,” Al-Hajri told KUNA.
He added that the championship’s technical level was high considering that most teams have distinct and professional players, and that Kuwaiti players’ effort was quite good compared to that.
“I was given the title after scoring 50 goals ahead of the Portuguese player Fabio’s 46 goals, which is a great accomplishment,” he noted.
“The Kuwaiti players, whose ages did not exceed 22 years, did a great job playing against the best teams of the world, despite their lack of experience,” Al-Hajri concluded.
