Distinguished veteran Thierry Lincou (pic le), the former World No1 and world champion from France who is making his tenth successive appearance in the biennial WSF Men’s World Team Squash Championship, led the hosts to a confident 3/0 win over Netherlands.

The other favorites, title holder Egypt and last times runner up England did win their opening matches against Kuwait and Colombia too. All results at the official event website:
