October 26, 2019 - England and New Zealand clash at the International Stadium Yokohama in the first semi-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

England overcame old rivals Australia to reach the semi-finals, while New Zealand shattered Ireland’s hopes of making it past the quarter-finals for the first time.

The final takes place at the International Stadium in Yokohama on November 2, where the champions will be presented with the Webb Ellis Cup.
