Worcester back row Jake Abbott helped steer England Sevens into the cup quarter finals of the Las Vegas Sevens after recording two victories and drawing with Argentina.
England won both their early pool matches against Wales and Japan - in which Abbott grabbed a try - to put them through to face Kenya on finals day.
Two first half tries from Nick Royle (Fylde) and a conversion from former Worcester player Ben Gollings (Gold Coast) was enough to squeeze a draw against the Pumas.
Royle's first try came just two minutes in showing his blistering pace by outrunning Argentina to chip the ball up field and over the line.
Argentina answered back gaining possession from an England knock-on to power over in the corner but failed to convert leaving England with a two point 7-5 lead.
A yellow card followed for Argentina for tripping Ollie Lindsay-Hague and whilst down to six men Royle struck again, this time picking up from the ruck to charge 60 metres crossing over in the top corner, Gollings failed to convert to take the half time score to 12-5.
England were scoreless in what was a scrappy second half and Argentina struck in the last minute with a converted try to finish with 12 apiece.
England: Tom Powell (Cambridge), Jake Abbott (Worcester Warriors), Nick Royle (Fylde), Oliver Lindsay-Hague (Harlequins), Ben Gollings (capt, Gold Coast, Australia), Mat Turner (Bristol Rugby), Donald Barrell (Saracens)
Replacements: James Rodwell (Moseley), Dan Caprice (Blackheath)
