Olympic winners qualify for knock-out stage

France are the second team in the knock-out stage of the Men’s Olympic tournament. Routine win over Argentina  31:24 (17:13) was only a warm-up for the strongest encounters in the Preliminary Group with Croatia and Denmark.

After they crushed Qatar, Claude Onesta guys had no-stress 60 minutes with sympatic Argentinians, who obviously lost a lot of energy in thriller with Croatia two days ago.

Luc Abalo netted seven goals for the winners, while Porte i Guigou added six with 15 saves of Omeyer. On the other side, Fernandez netted eight.

STANDINGS:

1 FRA France 6
2 DEN Denmark 4
3 CRO Croatia 4
4 QAT Qatar 3
5 TUN Tunisia 1
6 ARG Argentina 0
