The Springboks dominated the game even though there were no tries in the first half.
Fly-half Handre Pollard led the charge slotting in four penalties to give the Springboks the lead in the first half.
Winger Makazola Mapimpi crossed the whitewash in the 67th minute, scoring the Springboks first try in the World Cup final.
In a stunning effort South Africa’s other wing Cheslin Kolbe also scored a try a few minutes later taking the game away from the English.
It was a tight contest between England and South Africa however the Springboks came out on top.
England have got a real puzzle to solve at the break
