Tunisia vs. Egypt

 Tunisia clinched a tough victory over their compatriot Egypt 3-2 (25-16, 22-25, 25-27, 25-20, 15-13) in a thriller action lasting for 110 minutes. After Tunisia won the first set widely 25-16, Egypt replied positively to win two successive sets and lead 2-1 and were near to win the third set, but Tunisia returned back to pull off the fourth set and continued their wake up in the tiebreak to win the critical points after they were back 11-13.

 Tunisia started the match more disciplined and they led 8-5 due to the better blocking from the Tunisian centers Omar Agrebi and Mohamed Ayech. The Egyptian reception was not up to the level and that allowed Tunisia to use the spike service Brahim Besbes and Agrebi to widely lead till they won the set 25-16.

 Egypt improved their reception and digging against the Tunisian service and attacks and through the combinations of the setter Ahmed El Sayed, they started to build up the attacks through the opposite attacker Mostafa Idress to lead 16-14 before they made a tactical service that put them ahead 21-17. The Tunisian players committed several service mistakes that allowed Egypt to win the set 25-22.

 The third set showed early Egyptian dominance through their proper blocking against the attacks of Besbes in position 2 and Arabi Ben Abdalla in position 4 to lead 6-4 before the Tunisian improved their defense and also their spike service to lead 16-14 at the second technical timeout. Egypt had a good turn over turning the Tunisia leading 19-16 to lead 20-19. The set went point by point there after till they draw 24-24. Egypt again used the strong spikes of the wing spiker Omar Hassan and Hossam Sallam to win the set 27-25.

 The fourth set showed a great battle between the highly motivated Egyptian players and the Tunisians who wanted to come back. Egypt spikd well from positions 4 and 2 through Hassan and Idress till they lead 8-6 at the FTT. Tunisia came back with their proper tactical service to lead 16-15 at the STT. Again Besbes and Ali Ben Othman played their best to overcome the Egyptian blockers and win the set 25-20 to extend the match to tiebreak.

 The tiebreak showed early Egyptian dominance through the quick attacks of El Askalany and Mohamed El Mahdi who led Egypt to stay ahead at the court turn 8-6. Tunisia used their tactical service to score 4 successive points to lead 10-8, but Egypt returned back quickly to lead 12-10

Morocco vs. Rwanda

 Morocco cruised past Rwanda 3-0 (25-23, 25-20, 25-22) in the bronze medal match that showed Morocco doing all the techniques to win easier than expected. Morocco won the bronze medal leaving Rwanda at the fourth position.

 Rwanda started the match as the better side due to the domination of the net action through their middle blocker Blacide Sibomana and wing spiker Christophe Muknzi but quickly Morocco returned back through their efficient opposite spiker Mohamed Hachdadi to win the set 25-23. After winning the first set Morocco arranged their combinations led by the setter Moustafa Toufik who led his team to win the second and third set in style. 

Libya vs. South Africa

 Libya swept South Africa 3-1 (25-18, 25-23, 14-25, 25-17) in the fifth and sixth position match. The host team dominated the first and second sets completely due to their better blockers by the net specially Mohamed Abdel Wahab. The third set showed a completely different picture as South Africa used the decreased performance of the Libyan players and arranged the attacks through their wing spikers to win the third set widely before the Libyans regained their rhythm to win the fourth set and the match 3-1. 

 Libya finished the competition at the fifth position and the Rwandan team at the sixth position.
