The Springboks were too much for England, running out 12-32 winners.

The match was closely poised at half time, with the score at England 6-12 South Africa. However, South Africa asserted their dominance in the second half with tries from wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe and ended up winning comfortably.

South Africa are now world champions for the third time, winning for the first time since they beat England 15-6 in the 2007 World Cup final. They have now drawn level with New Zealand as the only nation to win three World Cup titles.


The result is heartbreaking for England players and fans after such an impressive tournament from the side. Indeed, hopes were high after England beat the All Blacks 19-7 in the semi-final.

Speaking after the impressive win over New Zealand, coach Eddie Jones said England's eyes were on the top prize.

He said: "You want to go right to the death and we're in the death now. We've got another week to enjoy ourselves and work as a team. Our players made a commitment to each other that they'd enjoy the World Cup and I think we're seeing that.

"We've come here to be the world's best and we haven't done that yet, so that's where we need to go."


England have now been runners up in three World Cup finals.
