Can anyone tell me, if there are 3 teams with same amount of points, what's more important for overall ranking, goal difference among those teams or overall goal difference?

 

GD among those teams, then Goals scored among those teams.

Overall GD is highly unlikely to be considered for a 3 way tiebreak.

When was the last time a non-European men's team qualified through the final qualification tournament?

1) Who said that?

2) Why? Just because Tunisia won against Macedonia? You shouldn't forget that ...

a) Croatia, Norway and Denmark are in the same group and i am sure that all of them would've beaten Tunisia, so Tunisia got very lucky whit the "draw". 

b) Macedonia was only 11th at the last european championships, other nations like Hungary, Russia or even Iceland are probably stronger at the moment. 

I think Tunisia would barely rank among the top 10 european nations in handball.

I think you can see most people are happy with Tunisia's win, so your comment is a bit off :d

Well Europe is generally speaking the strongest continent in most Olympic sports.
