What is England’s route to the final?

Quarter-finals

England qualified as group winners of Pool C, meaning they will get the runners up from Pool D.

Wales’ win over Uruguay meant they topped their group, leaving Australia to face England in the quarter-finals.

Semi-finals

If England were to knock out either Australia, then the reigning World Cup holders are on offer in the final four.

There, they will face whichever team prevails in the New Zealand vs Ireland match.

How did England do in Pool C?

England’s clash against France was called off due to Typhoon Hagibis.

That meant that the game was noted down as a 0-0 draw with two points going to each side.

And fortunately for England, they were already leading the table, meaning they progress as group winners.

Eddie Jones’ side had already comfortably beaten Tonga, USA and Argentina to send them through.
