It's a draw for a new Argentine soccer team named after Pope Francis.

The Papa Francisco team played to a 2-2 tie in its first official game.

Organizers say the semi-professional team is devoted to "no hooligans, no violence and no insults."

But two players from each team were ejected during the first match.

Pope Francis is an avid soccer fan.

But he has no official ties to the club named in his honor.
