What is it?
It is England v South Africa in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final. England beat New Zealand in the semi-final last Saturday, while South Africa claimed victory against Wales on Sunday.
It is the most eagerly-anticipated international rugby match there is and only takes place every four years, with 80 minutes separating two teams from global domination.
Twenty teams started off RWC 2019 with the goal of becoming world champions, and the path to the final is never an easy one.
England last made the World Cup final in 2007 and won the tournament for the only time in their history in 2003. South Africa have won the World Cup twice – their first every victory in 1995 against New Zealand, and the last win in 2007 against their current rivals.
When is it?
Tomorrow (Saturday, November 2, 2019).
What time does it kick-off?
9am GMT, 6pm local (JST).

Where is it being held?
International Stadium Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan. It was in this stadium that Japan had their famous win over Scotland in the pool stages and where both semi-finals were staged.
The stadium also hosted a number of football matches during the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
What happened last time out?
In the 2015 final, New Zealand secured back-to-back titles after overcoming Australia 34-17 at Twickenham. That final between Australia and New Zealand was the highest scoring Rugby World Cup final ever.
Man of the match was given to All Blacks fly-half Dan Carter, who in his 112th and final appearance in international colours scored 19 points and engineered his side to victory.
It was also the last time New Zealand rugby icons Richie McCaw, Ma’a Nonu, Conrad Smith and Keven Mealamu wore the famous all black jersey.
