Match preview:

Pool C in the World Cup heats up as England and Argentina go toe to toe. Join The Roar from 6pm (AEST) for this juicy encounter.

This is a must-win game for the Pumas. Lose, after their close loss to France, and their tournament is dead in the water.

England will want to win to keep their chase up for top spot. If they beat the Argies, then it will come down to their clash with France.

They have had easy victories over Tonga and the USA, but this is their first proper contest in Japan.

England enjoy a great record against Argentina. They have won the past nine meetings in a row and last lost to them in 2009.

The two countries have meet twice at World Cups before and the Red Rose has been triumphant on both occasions.

George Ford will start at 10 for Eddie Jones’ side, with captain Owen Farrell at inside centre. Manu Tuilagi will partner Farrell in the centres and Kyle Sinckler comes into the front row.

Anthony Watson and Jonny May start on the wings, with Jack Nowell named on the bench. Mako Vunipola and Courtney Lawes are also on the bench.

England will start with a potent back-row of Tom Curry, Sam Underhill and Billy Vunipola.

Argentina have made a number of surprising changes as they get ready for a game they are billing as their ‘World Cup final’.

Julian Montoya has been preferred at hooker instead of veteran Agustin Creevy. Nicolas Sanchez has been dropped after some sub-par peformances for Benjamin Urdapilleta.

Pablo Matera will captain the Pumas and be joined in the back-row by Marcus Kremer and Javier Ortega Desio.

Argentina are predicting a war up front and in the forwards. This is an all-or-nothing contest for the South Americans, one that will ultimately prove their worth.

Prediction
This is going to be tight, brutal and fiercely fought. But history and depth suggests England have the edge.

England to win by five points.

Join The Roar from 6pm (AEST) for the play by play.
