Argentina have never beat Japan before and that goal will still have to wait. Simply, Japanese ladies were a better team. 

We have to mention that Orduna’s side gave strong resistance, especially in the first and third set, when they had a chance to win those parts of the match.

Yuki Ishi was the top scorer with 18 points, while Saori SAkoda added 11. On the other side, Lucia Fresco was the most dominant player with 16 points.

In the quarterfinals, Japan, as the 4th ranked team will meet the U.S. team (1st placed) in the quarterfinals.
