France, Iceland remain unbeaten in handball

France and Iceland won in men's handball on Thursday to remain unbeaten in preliminary action at the London Olympics.

France posted a 25-19 win over Tunisia, while Iceland edged Sweden by a 33-32 score. The 3-0 teams will face each other Saturday in a key Group A showdown that is also a rematch of the gold medal game from four years ago in Beijing, which France won for its first Olympic handball title.

Argentina also defeated Great Britain, 32-21, in the other Group A contest.

Croatia and Denmark have also compiled 3-0 records in Group B. The Croatians, who won gold at the 1996 and 2004 Summer Games, notched a 26-19 win over Hungary, while Denmark clipped Serbia, 26-25.

Spain posted a 33-29 win over South Korea and is 2-1 in Group B.
