Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has warned his side they will need to improve despite claiming their first ever win in Argentina on Saturday.

Schmidt's men defeated the Pumas 29-17 in Resistencia thanks to tries from Chris Henry, Jonathan Sexton and Andrew Trimble.

The New Zealander is now turning his attention to the second Test in Tucuman next Saturday evening when the Six Nations champions will bring the curtain down on their season.

"I think both teams have real room for improvement some of their young guys really impressed me," he said.

"There were a few of them who were very gutsy. I felt they made things very difficult for us.

"I think we can look forward to a pretty interesting battle at Tucuman in seven days.

"I thought they really got off the line well and put a lot of pressure on us when we had the ball, and they we found it pretty difficult to contain them when they carried it well.

"It was a Test match."
