CDM : pas de vainqueur lors du duel entre Lyonnaises (0-0)
The OL teammates faced off with their respective national teams during Monday's Group D opener at the Parc des Princes.

OL's Sole Jaimes and Saki Kumagai went from teammates to adversaries at the Women's World Cup during Monday's 0-0 draw between Argentina and Japan in their Group D opener. Both Lyon stars went the full 90 minutes at the Parc des Princes, where neither side could find the breakthrough goal. 

A result that's way more disappointing for Japan, finalists in the last edition of the tournament, against an Albiceleste team that took its first point in Women's World Cup history. Next up for Sole Jaimes and Argentina is a showdown with fellow OL standout Lucy Bronze and England, while Japan will try to recover against Scotland.
