They just observed 24% of the ball however made things hard for England and appeared to be en route to a point before their flexibility was broken in the 61st minute to leave Argentina with only one point from their two games. She was given a yellow card, and Argentina's Florencia Bonsegundo had another shot at the penalty.

Scotland and Argentina go head to head in a do-or-die match that will decide their destiny in this current Women's World Cup.

In a group where every match has been tight, England have eked out two one-goal victories to take a grip on first. Crichton, with a heavy challenge on Jaimes, also demonstrated that there was finally more bite in the Scottish midfield. Alexander saved Bonsegundo's kick, but once again VAR came to the Argentinan's rescue. The Chelsea player smashed in a shot but Vanina Correa flung herself to parry.

The ball rebounded to Cuthbert.

Cuthbert then had the composure to pass to the edge of the six-yard box and Little was there to prod home.

That only had to wait four minutes into the second half.

In first half stoppage time, Weir lashed wide from range as Scotland tried once more to pull away.

What the Federal Reserve's rate cut decision means
Instead, officials said they will "act as appropriate to sustain the expansion". His comments came a day after it emerged Trump had discussed demoting Powell.

Argentina had only a third of possession in their two games and have managed only three tame shots on target but provided the Federation Internationale de Football Association player of the match both times.

Beattie's father, former Scotland rugby captain John, scored an global try against France at Parc des Princes in 1987.

When Argentina's captain and star Estefania Banini came off after an hour, to be replaced by Menendez, it seemed her and Argentina's World Cup was over.

Cuthbert, with her clever movement and flicks, was having a big influence on the proceedings, as was Emslie on the left and a smart move involving the two attackers need a near post smother by Correa to prevent a second goal.

Cuthbert meanwhile terrorised the Argentine defence.

Claire Emslie had a header from a corner, then - on 36 minutes - the speedy winger nearly turned provider for the sliding Cuthbert, with Correa just getting to a low cross before the striker. They looked to be cruising but a five-minute capitulation that saw Milagros Menéndez score and Lee Alexander deflect the ball into her own net had them on the brink of disaster. Scotland could not clear. After a long VAR pause, referee Hyang Ok Ri acknowledged there had been a foul. Eventually, it was ruled that Alexander had stepped off the line before the spot-kick was struck and the referee ordered a retake, with the goalkeeper seemingly marginally off the line. Bonsegundo then made sure with her second effort that sealed the draw and Scotland's dismal fate.
