All Blacks fans may think the sky's fallen in with Dan Carter's World Cup exit but their quarter-final opponents aren't convinced Sunday's knockout match has got any easier.

Argentina's rookie lock Tomas Vallejos, who's in line for his first Test, says it'll be no different facing the All Blacks at Eden Park without their star first five eighth.

He says it's the same playing Dan Carter or the second number 10 as New Zealand always has a good team.
