The Spanish handball players perfectly mastered the Argentinians of Diego Simonet, this Thursday, July 4, during the preparation match for the Olympics, in Montpellier.

In a Latin atmosphere, Spain took the upper hand over Argentina (26-32) during the preparation match between the two teams, this Thursday 4& ;nbsp;June, at the FDI Stadium in Montpellier.

The 2,000 spectators were able to enjoy great actions on both sides of the field (kung-fu, spectacular saves), even if the hearts of the public were leaning towards the selection from South America led by Montpellier player Diego Simonet.

An open match without great intensity

On the pitch, the few technical imprecisions clearly showed that the two teams were still revising their tactics in view of the Paris Olympic Games, the South Americans being in France's group. Spain took advantage of this to swing into the lead at half-time (17-20).

In this open preparation match between Spanish speakers, the Spanish, ranked fifth in the world, quickly took the measure of their Argentinian opponent despite a good resistance in the first half (9-8, 13th). Despite a low intensity (surely due to the physical preparation), the “Roja” flew away in the second half to lead by seven goals (22-29, 48th) to finally win 32 to 26.
