England v New Zealand : Rugby World Cup 2019, semi- final – live! The sight of the diminutive Ford stripping the All Black tighthead Nepo Laulala perfectly symbolised England ’s intent and it was the team in white who dominated virtually the entire first half.

Minute-by-minute report: Will England inflict New Zealand ’s first World Cup defeat since 2007 and reach the final ?

YOKOHAMA, Oct 26 (Reuters) - England advanced to the Rugby World Cup final and their first since 2007 after they produced a dominant performance to record a 19-7 win over two-time defending champions New Zealand in their semi-final at Yokohama Stadium on Saturday.

The result ended the All Blacks 18-match winning streak at the tournament after they were last beaten in the 2007 quarter-finals by France.

The 2003 champions rattled the All Blacks from the opening whistle with a Manu Tuilagi try in the second minute, setting the tone for the rest of the match as they put pressure on New Zealand's lineout and at the breakdown.

They played much of the game inside New Zealand's half and suffocated the All Blacks attack and will now meet the winner of Sunday's second semi-final between Wales and South Africa. (Reporting by Greg Stutchbury; Editing by xxxxxxx)
