Argentina women's national football team

The '''Argentina women's national football team''' represents Argentina in international women's football. Since there is no professional league in Argentina, almost all its members are amateur players.

Women's football in Argentina remains largely in the shadow of the men in terms of play development and fan support; in women's sports in Argentina, field hockey and volleyball are also more popular, both with professional leagues.

The Argentina v Brazil football rivalry in women's football cannot be compared to that of men given the big differences between both countries, with Brazil having a competitive professional women's league. Nevertheless, Argentina follows Brazil in the CONMEBOL standings.

On November 26, 2006, in the finals of the 2006 Sudamericano Femenino, Argentina beat Brazil, 2-0, to take the title.

On September 10, 2007, Argentina were beaten 11-0 by Germany in the opening match of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup.
