This grand finale clash is taking place at the 72,327 capacity International Stadium Yokohama today.
The game kicked off at 6pm JST local time – that’s an 9am GMT start for England fans and folks tuning in from the UK, and a 11am SAST kick-off for Springboks supporters looking to cheer on their side.
After losing to the All Blacks in their opening pool game, South Africa have made their way to the final somewhat under the radar, displaying some impressive defensive play coupled with incredible physicality.
The big test for England will be ensuring that they haven’t peaked following such a momentous semi-final victory. Eddie Jones has named an unchanged team, with skipper Owen Farrell, top try-scorer Jonny May and prop Kyle Sinckler all having been passed fit despite picking up knocks in their bruising win over the All Blacks.
South Africa have also received a selection boost with news that lightning wing Cheslin Kolbe has recovered from an ankle injury and will take his place in the Springboks starting line-up. Kolbe’s return in place of Sbu Nkosi is the only change to the South Africa side that played Wales, as coach Rassie Erasmus’s team look to win the World Cup for the third time.
Can England pull one more world-class display out of the bag, or will the battling Springboks lift the Webb Ellis Cup once more? You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our England vs South Africa Rugby World Cup Final live…
