The opening match of the 2019 Rugby World Cup kicks off on Friday, September 20 as nations from all across the globe compete for the William Webb Ellis Trophy in Japan. The opening stage of the competition sees 20 teams attempt to battle their way out of four Pools - A, B, C and D. Each Pool contains five teams and only two can advance into the knockout rounds. France are in Pool C alongside Argentina, England, Tonga and the USA - the so-called 'Group of Death' because three of the world's 'big fish' are in the same Pool, and only two can escape. France's matches against Argentina - the group opener on September 21 - and old enemy England - on October 12 - will be the games that decide who goes through and who suffers the ignominy of going home early. It doesn't get any easier in the quarter-finals either. Whoever progresses will have to play either Australia or Wales in the last 16. MATCH ONE France vs Argentina... Tokyo Stadium...
