Their journey from the start of this competition has proven that they are teams to reckon with. Tunisia, in the semi-final game against Angola, showed that it has all the potentials of being champions but the experience of the Angolan team killed the dream. The three-time winners, Tunisia, that was placed in Group A, was able to take almighty Angola who has won the title 13 times to overtime. Four-time winners, Congo on its part, was a serious threat to the Cameroonian team during their semi-final game. Cameroon only narrowly got a victory from this team thanks to the fighting spirit of the Lionesses. Congo fought right until the last minute and the winning gaol from Cameroon came seconds to the end of the game. Bringing Tunisia who traumatised Angola and Congo that got Cameroon trembling, could mean that having another splendid moment of handball is at the corner. It should be recalled that this will be third time both teams will be clashing for the third place of the competition with Congo winning in two occasions (1987 and 2008).
