Argentina ran in four tries as they upset Ireland at the Millennium Stadium to progress to the semi-finals. The Pumas looked to have the game won after 22 minutes as they led 20-3, but Ireland hauled themselves back into contention to trail by just three points early in the second half.

However, late tries from full-back Joaquin Tuculet and wing Juan Imhoff – his second of the match – rounded off a stunning victory for Daniel Hourcade’s exciting young team.

Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez was imperious with the boot, kicking 23 points.

Argentina led 20-10 at half-time, although that bald statistic does not begin to tell the story of the huge shock the Pumas inflicted on Ireland with a brace of superb tries in the opening 10 minutes, scored by Matias Moroni and Imhoff.

While Ireland reeled, and wing Tommy Bowe became their latest player to depart the field on the medical wagon, Sanchez kicked the Pumas into a 20-3 lead.

Only when Luke Fitzgerald, Bowe’s replacement, scored a try after 27 minutes – converted by Ian Madigan – could the Irish begin to sense a possible route back into the match.
