Argentina earns its first Women’s World Cup point with draw vs. Japan

Canada went off to a winning start by shutting out Cameroon 1-0 in Montpellier on Monday, while former winners Japan began their World Cup campaign with a frustrating 0-0 draw with Argentina in Paris.

Perhaps the biggest upset of the World Cup is how Argentina, which had an all-time scoring differential of negative-31 in two previous World Cup appearances, secured its first point on the world's biggest stage.

"We don't set out to be defensive against any team". "We are starting on our way and just starting to face up to these powerful forces in football".

"I congratulated my players". They will be very competitive. "We couldn't play any other way against this team". We had to keep ourselves back and focused, and be very, very organized with that sort of attitude to come out with a counterattack.

"It's the World Cup".

After 50 minutes, Kumi Yokoyama's drive from 35 metres drew a sprawling save from Vanina Correa.

"This point is really important for us". "I think we can do this, we can compensate and make up for the gap that does exist". Japan was the runner-up at the 2015 World Cup, losing to the United States Women's National Team. Argentina vs Japan match will be telecast on Sony ESPN and Sony ESPN HD TV channels. The national team has lost twice with four draws, including Monday against Argentina.

She was tenacious both with and without the ball and both first-half yellow cards were for rough Japanese challenges on the Argentine captain.

Japan played with more urgency in the second half, pushing Argentina back.

"There's no doubt in my mind that the goalkeeper has a really strong bearing over the whole team", Borrello said. Both matches are on Friday.

Kenneth Heiner-Møller's side had dominated possession and squandered several chances before Buchanan - a club player for French side Lyon - rose unmarked to head home a Janine Beckie corner after Nichelle Prince's low effort had deflected off the post and behind. But all eyes were on her teammate Christine Sinclair, who is four goals away from becoming the sport's all-time global top scorer.

Sinclair sits at 181 goals, trailing only former US forward Abby Wambach, who had 184 goals in global competition to set the record among men and women.
