England reached a fourth Rugby World Cup final, defeating champions New Zealand 19-7 in Yokohama.
Eddie Jones’ side will face either South Africa or Wales in next Saturday’s final, after sealing a famous victory over the All Blacks.

They will be attempting to win a second Rugby World Cup, having last lifted the William Webb Ellis trophy in 2003.

England led 10-0 at the break through Manu Tuilagi's try, Owen Farrell's conversion and a George Ford penalty.

Ardie Savea's converted try got New Zealand back in the game, but Ford kicked three second-half penalties to seal victory.

England were competing a first semi-final in 12 years and they made a blistering start to the game.

After forming a V-shape to face the Haka and a late switch of kicker for kick off England were over after 98 seconds, inflicting the fastest try their shell-shocked opponents had conceded in Rugby World Cup history.

Tuilagi crashed over after an electric England attack stretched New Zealand and the centre sniped over under the posts.

England were close to a second inside 10 minutes, May failing to finish an overlap on the left wing with Scott Barrett thwarting the wing.

For the second game in a row against New Zealand Sam Underhill had a try disallowed with Tom Curry penalised for an earlier obstruction as England continued to put pressure on their opponents.

New Zealand's set piece creaked throughout a difficult first half for the reigning champions, with England stealing two lineouts in key positions, as well as winning a scrum penalty against their opponents with Maro Itoje central to their fine first-half performance.
