Athletes Cherif Younousse and Ahmed Tijan managed to beat Italy’s Adrian Carambula and Enrico Rossi in two consecutive games with a 24-22 and 21-13 score at the Shiokaze Park.
The world No. 1 duo was able to win despite Younousse’s knee injury in the first set. He is expected to undergo a MRI scan to understand what happened to his twisted knee.
Earlier this week, the two players marked their first victory over Switzerland’s Adrian Heidrich and Mirco Gerson Tijan with a 21-17 and a 21-16 win.
They are also expected to compete against the US’ Jacob Gibb and Tri Bourne in their third Pool C Men’s Preliminary match on Friday.
