New Algeria men’s national team coach Sead Hasanefendic, did not have much to smile about in Tunis this past weekend as he watched his side lose all three of their games in the Tunisian Handball Federation’s ‘Four Nations’ tournament held this past international break.


The hosts won the title thanks to wins against all three sides including an opening 28:26 victory against Saudi Arabia, with Montpellier’s Mohamed Soussi top-scoring on four, followed by a 30:20 win over Gudmundur Gudmundsson's Bahrain in which Chambery Savoie Mont Blanc Handball’s Amine Bannour top-scored with nine.


Toni Gerona’s side then finished off their home tournament with a 33:22 win against Hasanefendic’s Algeria, in which the 27-year-old right-back Bannour finished with the most strikes, on six, meaning he would finish as the tournament top-scorer on 15.


All six games took place at the El Menzah Sports Palace and were livestreamed or shown on Tunisia’s Watania 1 with entry to the arena free for fans.


The tournament allowed Tunisia and Algeria to prepare for the 2018 CAHB African Men’s Championship in Gabon, and Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to get ready for the 2018 AHF Asian Men’s Championship in Korea.
