Come here for the latest team news and Michael Cheika's entire 33-man squad

Michael Cheika has named the final Argentina Rugby World Cup squad of the tournament, with Tomás Cubelli back at nine and Jeronimo de la Fuente in at centre. Pedro Rubiolo also replaces Tomas Lavanini in the second row.

Argentina are playing England in the bronze final, on Friday night.

Cheika said of his selections and tactics: “We analysed the England match. We expect them to play a more open game, with (Marcus) Smith at 15, hooker (Theo) Dan who is a good player with the ball in hand. We need to be ready for his game and also how to play the kicking game. There will be a lot of running.

“We need to be ready for everything. The analysis we did is also in the strategy.”
