In the 4th round of Group C, Sweden had an ‘easier’ task ahead when they faced Argentina. In the first half, the Swedish team had a lot more difficult task than expected as Argentina was running close behind them. In the first half, the Scandinavians couldn’t work out a bigger advantage, at halftime, their lead was 4 goals (17-13). Then in the second half, Sweden was more concentrated and Argentina couldn’t keep up with the opponent. The difference grew quickly between the two sides and, as expected, Sweden took a very confident victory against the South Americans (38-24). In the end, each Swedish field player managed to score at least one goal.
