The Europeans will be hoping to reach the World Cup semi-finals for the first time in 28 years when they take on Lionel Messi and company in Brasilia.
Marc Wilmots's side have been slightly unconvincing in their progress to the last eight, which Kompany feels is because most of their opponents have adopted defensive approaches, and the defender has promised an improved performance and possible scalp should Argentina make it an open match.
"If Argentina decide to play their usual attacking game, we'll have a pretty good chance against them," he told reporters.
"You need two teams to produce an exciting match. The Americans tried to push forward. That's all we were asking for. It takes two to tango, and they wanted the same thing as us."
Kompany and his teammates needed extra time to beat the United States and progress to this stage.
