South Africa won Rugby World Cup defeating an England team, 32 - 12 , and extending the supremacy of teams from the Southern Hemisphere in the competition.

YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Siya Kolisi grabbed the Webb Ellis Cup with his big hands, gave it a kiss and hoisted it high as fireworks exploded and his teammates — black and white — rejoiced behind him.

A blowout victory in the Rugby World Cup final for the Springboks.

Yet another transcendent moment for post-apartheid South Africa.

Led by its first black captain in the Springboks' 128-year rugby history, South Africa's multi-racial squad swept to a record-tying third World Cup title by overpowering England in a 32-12 victory on Saturday.

"We have so many problems in our country," the 28-year-old Kolisi said. "A team like this — we come from different backgrounds, different races — came together with one goal."

He thanked the people on the farms, in the taverns, in the townships and in the streets.

Tries by wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe and the goalkicking of Handre Pollard earned South Africa their third Rugby World Cup title on Saturday as the flyhalf kicked 22 points to secure a 32 - 12 victory over an error-strewn England . South Africa led 12-6 at halftime through four Pollard

South Africa have defeated England 32 - 12 to win the 2019 Rugby World Cup at the Yokohama International Stadium in Japan. Tries by wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe and the goalkicking of Handre Pollard earned South Africa their third Rugby World Cup title on Saturday as

"We love you, South Africa," an emotional Kolisi said, "and we can achieve anything if we work together as one."

Kolisi was shaking with adrenalin as he belted out the national anthem before kickoff in Yokohama and was then at the heart of a massive effort by the Boks forwards, who brutalized England with their traditional power at the set piece to seize control of the game.

The English were driven backward at the scrum. Their passing was sloppy. The kicks were overhit. What happened to the team that demolished the All Blacks in the semifinals?

Yet, at 18-12 with 20 minutes left, the final was still up for grabs.

Then the Springboks opened up, showing the other side of their game and scoring late tries out wide through wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe.

Mapimpi kicked ahead from the left wing and was on hand to receive a pass from center Lukhanyo Am to race over near the posts in the 67th minute.

South Africa are world champions for a third time after Handré Pollard kicked 22 points in a 32 - 12 win over England , with second-half tries from Makazole Minute-by-minute report: Join Luke McLaughlin for all the latest reaction after South Africa outclassed England to win their third World Cup .

South Africa overpower England in the Rugby World Cup final in Yokohama to become champions for a third time. South Africa took that momentum and through a Pollard Garryowen-and-gather went deep into the English 22 before Willie le Roux knocked on as he carved an outside line down the right.

Kolbe's try was even better, the dynamic right winger scampering down the touch line before stepping inside England captain Owen Farrell and running through unchecked in the 74th.

The celebrations could start early for the South African fans inside the International Stadium and back home, on a poignant night for a country still trying to fully emerge from the apartheid era.

"We had the privilege of giving people hope," South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus said, "not the burden of giving people hope."

It was 24 years ago when the Springboks won their first World Cup title in front of Nelson Mandela, a year after he became president in a democratic election after decades of racial segregation and his own imprisonment for 27 years.

Twelve years later, they won it again — also against England — and it has been another 12-year gap to their third.

While the All Blacks have also won the biggest prize in rugby three times, they have played in all nine editions of the World Cup. South Africa has only played in the tournament seven times, having been barred from the 1987 and '91 tournaments as part of sporting sanctions during the apartheid era.

Millions of England fans were left disappointed as Eddie Jones' men lost to South Africa in today's nail-biting Rugby World Cup final. Image caption England captain Owen Farrell (centre) and his team could not overcome South Africa . Pubs in London began to empty before the final whistle as

South Africa put in a powerful performance to clinch a convincing 32 - 12 victory over England at the Rugby World Cup final in Japan. South Africa won on both previous occasions it reached the final, beating New Zealand in 1995 and England in 2007. Each evening at 1830 UTC, DW's editors send

It is three wins from three finals for the Springboks, who finally scored a try in a title match.

England never led in the final and its players slumped to the ground at the final whistle, lock Maro Itoje hurling his scrum cap.

Maybe they did play their final last weekend, as some of their fans feared. Maybe beating Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in a two-week span was just too much to ask.

Coach Eddie Jones, an Australian brought in after the wreckage of the 2015 World Cup that England hosted but didn't even get out of the pool stage, got the team to the top of the rankings — his first aim after taking charge.

But he couldn't deliver a second title for England, after the class of 2003. Jones was also on the losing end in '03 as Australia's coach in final decided by a dropped goal in extra time.

"I thought they executed their plan brilliantly," England flyhalf George Ford said of the Boks. "They just did a job on us."
