In a group with Japan and England, Argentina looked like one of the biggest long shots to advance and it probably still is, but Argentina played a ideal upset-manufacturing style. The football scramble is playing in the tournament World Cup, Women.
"This point is really, really important for us".
"We weren't able to create decisive chances and our spacing wasn't good", said the 28-year-old defender, who recently lifted the UEFA Women's Champions League trophy with Lyon.
She came back in 2017 and it still seemed unlikely because of where Argentina stood. "It was satisfying to gain a point in this World Cup", Borrello said.
She was tenacious both with and without the ball and both first-half yellow cards were for rough Japanese challenges on the Argentine captain.
"In the second half, they realized they had to be more offensive - so their tempo was faster and they attempted more shots at goal". Of course, we have to keep a very solid defense, but we don't want to play defensive football. It wasn't in our mindset at all. But the players were cautious today.
After a first half which didn't produce many goal-scoring opportunities for Japan, they missed to take the lead in the 50th minute when Yuika Sugasawa kicked it wide from a hard angle.

Japan captain Saki Kumagai said her team needed to improve in their remaining group games against Scotland and England if they are to reach the knockout stage. Both will need to find a way to score. We know we still have two national teams ahead of us to face. "We were up against a real football force".
"We believe that we can continue fighting and we can get more points on board, and not go home with just one".
"I'm not going to shy from saying we were up against a superior side, a world power and on the pitch it was a very hard match we had to run loads", Argentina captain and player of the match Estefania Banini said afterwards.
Canada struggled with their shooting and only broke through from a set piece just before half time. But all eyes were on her teammate Christine Sinclair, who is four goals away from becoming the sport's all-time worldwide top scorer. Three have been from headers.
Sinclair sits at 181 goals, trailing only former USA forward Abby Wambach, who had 184 goals in worldwide competition to set the record among men and women.
