Argentina made one of the first rounds surprises when they stole a point against Hungary (25-25). Tonight when meeting Sweden they showed the same creative handball, believing in their skills and playing what they really are able to do. After 6-6, Sweden took the lead, 11-7, 12-8, Argentina was finding the gaps in the Swedish defense but met an excellent Palicka in the goal.
