Argentina 0-0 Japan

Yuika Sugasawa

Japan began their quest to reach a third straight World Cup final with a disappointing goalless draw against outsiders Argentina.

The Japanese won the tournament in 2011 by beating the United States, who gained revenge four years later.

An uninspiring contest saw Japan's Yui Hasegawa screw a shot wide from a promising position in the second half - the closest either side came to a goal.

The draw leaves England top of Group D after they beat Scotland on Sunday.
