England fans sang an incredible rendition of 'Wonderwall' after final whistle v New Zealand

England v New Zealand - Rugby World Cup 2019: Semi-Final

England are in the Rugby World Cup final.


After an imperious performance against the mighty All Blacks, Eddie Jones' men booked their place in the Yokahama showpiece next Sunday.

Right from the off the English were all over their much-fancied opponents, with Manu Tuilagi bashing over inside the opening three minutes.

They then booed and roared their way through the famous New Zealand haka and never stopped swinging low throughout the full 80 minutes.

The fans were simply outstanding and it truly felt like England had a 16th man on the field with them.

However, the England faithful saved their best performance for after the final whistle, by which point the party was well and truly in full swing.

After Nigel Owens called the game to a close, the stadium speakers blared out Oasis' 'Wonderwall" and that was all the encouragement fans needed.

Incredible stuff - you just love to hear it.

England has always had incredible travelling support but they outdid themselves in Japan today.

Now Owen Farrell and co. must await the result of tomorrow's semi-final between South Africa and Wales before they start preparing for Sunday.

After their faultless performance today though, they will have surely, by now, realised what they've got to do.

The road they have walked to the final has been winding, but can they make history by lifting the William Webb-Ellis cup for a second time? 

"I said maybe."
