The closest chance came after nine minutes when Narumi Miura flashed wide of Vanina Correa’s right-hand post from a promising position. The Argentina goalkeeper cut out Yuika Sugasawa’s back-post header soon after with a number of players poised to pounce inside the 6-yard box.Correa was called into action five minutes after the restart, pawing Kumi Yokoyama’s long-range drive into the path of Sugasawa, who blazed over from an acute angle. Hasegawa then had the clearest chance of the game shortly before the hour mark, skewing horribly wide from 12 yards when it looked easier to score.That miss appeared to deflate Japan, with Argentina breaking out of its own half to cause its opponents some nervous moments in defense.Neither side was able to find a winner in the closing stages, though, with Argentina finishing as the happier team having claimed its first ever World Cup point.
