Rugby World Cup 2023 bronze final preview: Argentina vs England
Marcus Smith returns to full-back after missing the defeat by the Springboks and Henry Arundell is recalled on the wing as two of eight changes. Scrum-half Ben Youngs makes his first start of the tournament in his final England appearance before retiring from the international game. Argentina have made three changes from the side that was comfortably beaten by New Zealand in the semi-final. Pedro Rubiolo starts in the second-row, Tomas Cubelli is named at scrum-half and Jeronimo de la Fuente will begin the game at inside centre. Head coach Michael Chieka has kept faith with 19 of the matchday squad which faced England in the opening game. "We've seen progress and are pleased and proud of the players. If we get Friday night right and do our job to the best of our ability then we have a good chance of leaving the tournament with some tangible reward and some satisfaction to go along with all the hard work. "This is not the week you want to be playing in. You can be honest and say this isn't the game that these two teams aimed to play in. But we could have already been at home and we're not. If you're asking where you'd rather be, you'd rather be here participating in a World Cup." "Winning the bronze medal is very important. It's a Rugby World Cup. It is very nice and very important. For us, for everything we did and for the country, to be able to win bronze is to finish as high as we can. "Also the experience for everyone in the group, for the future and the legacy of the most experienced players. Finishing as high as we can was always the goal."
