Despite leading his side to their first win on Argentinian soil, New Zealander Schmidt is looking for a better performance from the team on Saturday.He expects the Argentinians to be better and they will have taken on some lessons from the first Test as to how to approach the Irish team.Schmidt is looking to his side to respond to the first outing and pull out a win which would seal the two-match series, per Sky Sports:Encounters against southern hemisphere teams are absolutely crucial for Ireland with the World Cup only a year away.

They have proved their quality recently against Six Nations sides, and continued success against the other high-profile sides should breed great confidence before 2015's showpiece event in England.


However, Ireland need to be clinical against Argentina and only a truly convincing win will make this a successful tour.

Improvements need to be made from Resistencia in the tackling—several were missed in the first encounter—and handling arenas.

Simon Zebo's return to the international frame was a successful one and he will look to continue his revival on Saturday.

From an Argentinian perspective, the young team on show for the first Test look to be very able as back-ups to their European stars who were absent.

Like Ireland, next year's World Cup is key for the Pumas and they look to be progressing well, proving that there is depth in the squad.

Saturday's encounter should be another fine occasion as both sides look to perform better than they did in the first Test.

While Argentina will be desperate to tie the series at 1-1, Ireland should have enough for victory and a highly satisfying summer outing in South America.
