On day 4 of the 2019 Women's World Cup, Argentina made their first point in the FIFA Women's World Cup ever, after keeping two-time finalist Japan at bay, ending the match in a draw. Even though, Japan, the 2011 champions, were expected to have an easy win, Argentina was able to halt them to a scoreless draw. Argentina had only one shot on goal, but had possession for 72 percent of the game with almost 400 less passes. Japan pressed Argentina, but couldn't get past the Argentina defense. Japan wasn't able to get the break they needed in the second half, sending them on to play Scotland.
