I dream of lifting the cup – Creevy

Date published: October 14 2015

Argentina captain Agustin Creevy insists that the Pumas can go all the way in the World Cup starting against Ireland on Sunday.

Argentina face off against a wounded Ireland side at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in what should be another tightly contested affair. 

"I dream of lifting the cup. I don't know whether it will come true, but I swear I dream about it," said the 30-year-old Creevy.

The Pumas' world ranking has gone up in a year from 12 to six after wins against Australia and South Africa and Creevy believes there is no limit to what Argentina can do at the Rugby World Cup.

"This team has no limits," he added.

"We have made mistakes, we have problems with nerves. But when we are confident.

"In the quarter-finals, the team will be hungry, they can overcome those mistakes and we will be triumphant.

"We can reach the top – the semi-finals, the final and be world champions."

Creevy's main objective is winning the World Cup and in order to do so he refuses to take up the captain's privilege of getting a single room at the team base as he prides himself on team unity and harmony. Creevy currently shares with full-back Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino.

"The room is quiet. I speak more than he does. It is a fun, healthy and hard-working group," said Creevy.

Argentina suffered a set back in their opening fixture against New Zealand after Mariano Galarza was banned for nine weeks after being found guilty of making contact with the eye or eye area of Brodie Retallick.

Creevy, however feels that for every set-back there's a comeback. 

"Mariano is a close friend of mine. When he was suspended, it hit me very hard," said Creevy.

"But that's life. I told him that the sanction will make him stronger and that he will get his revenge. It was sad but it unites us when they take one of your soldiers."
