England defied the odds to defeat defending champions New Zealand 19-7 in the Rugby World Cup semi-final in Japan.
England will meet a frighteningly good New Zealand in the first semi-final of the Rugby World Cup in Japan next Saturday (October 26).
In what was a masterclass of attacking rugby, New Zealand destroyed poor Canada 63-0 in Pool B of the World Cup and confirmed their status as clear favourites to lift the trophy.
Next week, New Zealand begin their Rugby World Cup defence in Japan. The All Blacks have won the William Webb Ellis trophy three times since its inception in 1987, and are renowned throughout the world as the kings of rugby union.
