The Culture Behind the Game

I had the chance to attend the Japan-Argentina match at Paris’ Parc de Princes on June 10, and witnessed the strong support for Argentina first-hand in the stadium. Apparently, there’s a strong Argentine community in Paris. Who knew?

But to understand why the draw was actually a “win” for Argentina, read my piece for The Athletic on “How the Argentina women’s team overcame their own federation to win their first-ever World Cup point.” PDF here.
