After convincing wins against Australia and Argentina, France coach Philippe Saint-André has warned his side not to take their foot off the pedal ahead of their clash with Samoa.
Last year's World Cup finalists are aiming to be among the top four seeds for the 2015 World Cup when the draw is made next month - thus avoiding the southern hemisphere favourites in the group stage.
The French had started slowly against the Pumas and trailed 13-3 before the quarter-of-an-hour mark but two quickfire tries by Vincent Clerc - taking him onto 34 and into second place in the all-time tryscoring lists for France and two clear of Saint-André - turned the match round.
Saint-André said he had enjoyed himself immensely in the first half which saw four tries scored and plenty of freeflowing rugby summed up by the fact that the first scrum was only a minute from the break.
"I am happy that we have been able to put together two successive victories in successive weeks, especially against two southern hemisphere sides," said the 45-year-old former France skipper.
"Even more so when one looks at the results and you see that no other country from Europe beat a southern hemisphere nation side today.
"We began poorly and lacked sharpness and rapidly were behind but we didn't panic.
"Nicolas Mas asked me whether it was necessary to have a prop anymore as the first scrum wasn't till the 39th minute!
"In the second half the Argentineans played a lot more with their boot. I still thought that we mastered them in the second half.
"One has to congratulate the players spirit who wanted still to score a fourth try in the dying seconds despite there being no bonus point on offer.
"We also have to slap Vincent Clerc on the back as he has now moved ahead of me to become the second biggest try scorer in French rugby behind Serge Blanco (who has 38)."
Saint-André said the nexus of the side had been born in the June tour of Argentina.
"I heard that this tour would be needless," he said.
"We took several regulars along like the captain (Pascal Papé), and some young players and we can see that the backbone of the team tonight is that of the last Test against the Pumas in June.
"You have to keep your humility when you see the Welsh who won the Six Nations Grand Slam but have lost their last five Tests ahead of hosting the All Blacks and the Australians.
"We can see that we really have a tightly-knit squad who give everything for each other. However, we must not get big-headed as we have the 'headhunters' (The Samoans) who are coming to the Stade de France next week."
The Bleus coach said that he had admired attacking spirit of his players in the first half.
"I have already said that you have to be a decathlete to play rugby," he said.
"Where I am happy is that we made some daring moves, we played good rugby, and we made some passes.
"In the first-half I really enjoyed myself. Those who love rugby saw ambition and initiative. Even at the end of the match, there was still this spirit and this hunger to score another try.
"When we have this spirit and this hunger then I believe we really can do good things. But we mustn't take our foot off the pedal."
Clerc explained how France managed to turn the momentum in their favour.
"We started the match poorly and didn't show the same commitment we had against Australia," said Clerc.
"They got us on the back foot but then we were more aggressive and imposed our game on them."
Number eight Louis Picamoles said next weekend's final Test against Samoa would offer a new challenge.
"We reacted well and kept going. The second half wasn't as good but we did the main thing and got another win, so let's not stop here," said Picamoles.
"We get on well together and we want to show it out on the pitch. Samoa will be very, very hard to beat. They showed that by beating Wales yesterday."
