New Zealand beat Ireland in a thrilling match (28-24) on Saturday at the Stade de France and qualified for the semi-finals of the Rugby World Cup.

The All Blacks maintained their lead throughout the match, but they had to make a great effort to stand up in order to overthrow the Irishman, ranked first in the world, and earn the right to face Argentina in the semi-finals next Friday.

The black jersey, which had faded for several seasons, regained its majesty by winning the confrontation against the Greens, favorites to win the World Cup after their first-round victory over the defending champion South Africa (13-8). Back at the top, as their demonstration against Italy (96-17) might suggest, New Zealand, three-time world champions, topped the quarter-finals from start to finish and now look like serious contenders for a fourth crown.

Argentina defeats Wales

Therefore, Argentina will play the third semi-final match in its history in the World Cup next Saturday at the Stade de France. Australian coach Michael Cheika's players defeated Wales 29-17 in Marseille. After being eliminated in the group stage during the last edition, Argentina returned to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 2015.
