Argentina briefly threatened when Sole Jaimes' shot was blocked following Estefania Banini's run and cross from the left, but the South Americans offered little going forward. "We had to be really intelligent about things and be full concentrated at all times".

Somehow, the two-year gap wasn't a death knell for Argentina's 2019 Women's World Cup hopes.

Cameroon were the only African side to reach the knockout stages at the last World Cup and could have got back into the game in the 68th minute but Claudine Meffometou headed wide from six yards.

The Argentines have everything to do to advance from their group that contains three teams ranked inside the top 20 in the world however one player who could demonstrate essential to their odds is rising star Milagros Menendez. Speaking about Japan, this team has already won the FIFA Women's World Cup 2011.

The result, which earned Argentina's women their very first point in a World Cup, leaves both teams on one point in Group D, behind England who beat Scotland on Sunday (June 9).

Christine Sinclair was bidding to become the first player to score at five World Cup finals and nearly doubled the lead in the dying minutes when she poked the ball towards goal but Meffometou cleared it off the line and behind for a corner.

Argentina, meanwhile, will take on World No. 3 and tournament favourites England on Saturday, 15 June.

When the final whistle blew after surviving a final corner kick in stoppage time, goalkeeper Vanina Correa collapsed to her knees and buried her head in her hands.

A dour first-half saw both sides make poor judgements and we had to wait until the 26th minute for a first real attempt on goal. "I think we were able to play as a team. The fact they understand your game plan and are so disciplined on the pitch is very satisfying to see", Borrello said.

But they now face a hard task advancing from their group. If you are in India and looking for free live streaming and online stream of Argentina vs Japan, then scroll down below for details.
