Egypt 2021: The Best - Main Round
27 Jan. 2021
Throughout the 2021 IHF Men’s World Championship Main Round which started on Wednesday 20 January and finished on Monday 25 January, a total of 36 matches were played with some impressive individual and team performances, statistically-speaking.
24 teams battled it out in the main round, with 20 winning at least one 'hummel Player of the Match' award.
Half of the quarter-finalists; Denmark, Egypt, Spain and Sweden took the award in all three of their games, with Switzerland also having a 100% record of awarding.
France, who topped their group and have a perfect record at Egypt 2021 so far, did not win one in the second phase.
Every single match - like all at Egypt 2021 - saw fans have the opportunity to help decide the ‘hummel Player of the Match’ award, via the IHF Official App with the IHF Analyst on site nominating a shortlist of three influential players with five minutes remaining and getting fans to vote.
