Out of the blocks
On the artificial surface inside BC Place, England got the opening score inside two minutes as Dan Norton eased in down the left wing unopposed.
Head of England Sevens Simon Amor called for more accuracy from his squad following a seventh-place finish in Las Vegas and the men in white were in clinical mood as Tom Mitchell's burst set Norton up for a second.
Ben Roach crossed for Wales before Norton's hand-off and pace down the wing secured his hat-trick before the break, for a 17-5 lead.
Ollie Lindsay-Hague's brilliant step and 30 metre run got England's first of the second half, James Rodwell crossed from Dan Bibby's assist and then Lindsay-Hague got his second after Ryan Olowofela's line break from deep inside England's half.
England's second match against Samoa proved to be a much tighter affair with David Afamasaga's try giving the Samoans a 7-0 half-time lead.
Phil Burgess' score got England back in the game half way through the second half but Elisapeta Alofipo's line break got Samoa's second score under the posts.
Laaloi Leilual then pounced on some turnover ball as the Samoans showed some fine offloading to secure the win.
Knowing they had to win by five points or more to top the group, England went in at the break level at 7-7 with Argentina through Phil Burgess' score.
Despite captain Tom Mitchell's time in the sin bin, England were able to hold out and Ruaridh McConnochie went over to establish a vital lead.
With the game in the closing stages, McConnochie then was able to dot down off the back of a rolling maul to secure a place in the last eight.
Dan Bibby, Phil Burgess, Richard de Carpentier, Harry Glover, Charlie Hayter, Ollie Lindsay-Hague, Ruaridh McConnochie, Tom Mitchell (c), Ryan Olowofela, James Rodwell, Dan Norton, Ethan Waddleton.
