Englands World Cup game against Argentina at Tokyo on Saturday is going to be like awar, says Pumas hooker Agustin Creevy.
England are high in Group C with just two wins from 2 while Argentina are second after a win and a defeat.
The Pumas will have to beat after they lost to France in their opener England to progress to the knockout stages.
I believe that the battle is going to be in the forwards, Creevy stated.
We need to win the scrum, we must win the lineout, the the breakdown.
Saturdays likely to be similar to a war. It is a closing for us
England have won 18 of their 23 encounters for example the last nine matches between the two teams, with Argentina.
Sport contests between the countries in the previous four decades have often been played in 1982 against the background of the Falklands War between Argentina and the UK.
The conflict resulted in Argentine and 255 British servicemens deaths. Three people from the islands died during the battle.
Diego Maradona has said hisHand of God goal against England in the 1986 soccer World Cup was revenge for the Falklands while Fifa fined the Argentina Football Association #20,000 following its players displayed a banner in support of the countrys claims to the Falkland in 2014.
Creevy, who performed in England for Worcester Warriors, will grow to be the Pumas player when he makes an 88th look in Tokyo.
Maybe my experience using Worcester will help me a great deal, to observe the way that it is going to play , he explained.
The forwards praised England for its structured approach that has returned to its this year – and consequently pushed against them one of the challengers for a second World Cup.
Sometimes its boring but I think its great for England. It works for them, he said.
We train a great deal in scrum abilities and our mentality.
I believe were improving a lot in the scrum. We must continue although we feel really, really great now. The England scrum is really great.
