Cliodhna Sargent was on target for Ireland again in Buenos Aires

Ireland's women's team produced another impressive display as they held Argentina to a 2-2 draw in their latest match in the Four Nations tournament in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

A deflected Shirley McCay shot and a Cliodhna Sargent goal gave the Irish a shock 2-0 lead by half-time against the world's number two ranked side.

However, the home side hit back to level and keeper Pamela Stevenson made some great late saves.

Ireland face India on Sunday evening.

That will be the third and fourth place play-off in the tournament with the hosts facings South Africa in the final.

Ireland already faced India in the tournament on Thursday when Sargent's goal earned the Irish an impressive 1-0 victory over their higher-ranked opponents.

Another competition involving the four countries will take place in Buenos Aires from 14-18 December.
