Rugby World Cup history will be made as two South American nations meet at the tournament for the first time.

Argentina take on Chile in Pool D looking to avoid a scare and take a step towards the quarter-finals.

After an opening defeat to England, Los Pumas survived torrid conditions to beat Samoa in the wet to get their tournament back on track.

But Chile’s encouraging opening quarter in Lille last Saturday will give Pablo Lemoine’s side hope that they can mix it with their neighbours as their debut tournament comes to a close.

Team news

Argentina coach Michael Cheika refreshes his squad, giving opportunities to a number of players yet to feature so far in France. Among them are young starters Martin Bogado and Rodrigo Isgro, with Juan Imhoff lending his veteran nous to an otherwise inexperienced back three, while Jeronimo de la Fuente captains the side from the centres.

Marcos Kremer and Juan Martin Gonzalez continue in the back row and Agustin Creevy, who became Argentina’s first centurion in August, makes a first start of the tournament at hooker.

Pablo Lemoine also makes sweeping changes to his Chile side, bringing back in a handful of regular first-choice players after rotating for the encounter with England. Martin Sigren, Clemente Saavedra and Raimundo Martinez reunite in the back row having started together against Samoa, and Santiago Videla returns on the wing having recovered from a head injury.

Rugby World Cup debuts await for scrum half Nicolas Herreros and lock Augusto Sarmiento off the bench.
