The Pumas look dangerous after pulling off  their first ever victory over South Africa ahead of the World Cup.

While they lost to the same team a week later, their ability to defeat the Springboks surely sends an ominous message to the other high-ranked teams at the tournament.

Argentina, who are favourites to qualify from Pool C alongside the All Blacks, will be hoping to at least emulate their previous best World Cup performance - third place in 2007.
