The Team's performance in the '90s boosted the sport's popularity in the country and attracted media and official attention, especially after scoring a huge upset against former World champions Romania in the 1995 World Men's Handball Championship held in Iceland.

Egypt also became the first non-European team to reach the World Championship semi-finals in the 2001 Men's tournament that was held in France. The Egyptians dubbed that team as the "Dream Team".
