Argentina secured a comfortable a win over Chile to boost their Rugby World Cup quarter-final hopes and set up a winner-takes-all tie with Japan.

An eight-try 59-5 victory in Nantes means the Pumas return to second in Pool D, level on points with the Cherry Blossoms, who they will face next week.

Argentina had raced into a 24-0 lead at half-time and scored a bonus point try in the 45th minute.

Chile end their World Cup campaign with a fourth defeat.

Argentina's victory also eliminates Samoa from from Pool D. Only Michael Cheika's men and Japan can now join leaders England in the last eight.
