It will be a momentous day for England as it faces South Africa in the Rugby World Cup final this weekend.

England will play in the final for the first time in ten years after a major victory over three-time champions, the All Blacks, last Saturday (October 26).

The last time England was in a final was in 2007, when it also came up against South Africa and lost.

Out of eight world cup tournaments since 1987, England has played in the finals three times, and come out as champions once in 2003.

Saturday's (November 2) clash against South Africa will be held at the International Stadium Yokohama in Japan. Due to the time difference, it will be an early 9am game for Britons in the UK.
