LONDON (AP) — Defending Olympic champion France moved to the top of Group A in men’s handball after a 32-20 win over Argentina on Tuesday.
Left back Nikola Karabatic scored seven times for France, which has a total of 76 goals in two matches, more than any other team in the tournament.
Earlier, Sweden beat host Britain 41-19. Niclas Ekberg led his team with 13 goals, while Fredrik Peterson scored seven. Britain remains at the bottom of Group A after two losses.
Iceland center Aron Palmarsson scored eight goals to help his team beat Tunisia 32-22. The 2008 silver medalists, who beat Argentina in their opening match, took a 24-9 lead before Tunisia rallied to reduce the deficit.
In Group B, European champion Denmark edged Spain 24-23 after Michael Knudsen scored the winning goal with only 13 seconds left on the clock.
With two wins each, Denmark shared the lead in the group with Croatia.
Ivan Cupic’s eight goals helped Croatia to a 31-23 victory over rival Serbia, the silver medalist at this year’s European Championship. It was the second loss for Serbia, which is tied with South Korea in last place of Group B.
Hungary earned its first win by beating South Korea 22-19, leaving the Asian team with no points after two rounds.
