Argentina and England will meet in the match to decide third place after each losing in their semi-finals. The two teams already played in the pool stage, when England won 27-10.

Steve Borthwick’s side looked to be holding on comfortably in their semi-final but South Africa set up a grandstand finish into the final 10 minutes winning 16-15 in Paris. 

The Springboks looked on the verge of defeat as England’s kicking game worked wonders but a late surge through RG Snyman’s try and Handre Pollard’s kick with less than three minutes left gave them a scrappy win. 

Meanwhile, Michael Cheika’s side were well beaten in their third Rugby World Cup semi-final appearance, with the All Blacks thrashing Los Pumas in a 44-6 rout to reach their fifth final.

The Pumas have never reached the final but have played for third place twice – winning in 2007 and losing in 2015.

When is it? 

England will play Argentina in the so called bronze final on Friday 27 October (the day before the final).The game kicks off at 8pm UK time, 9pm local time and 4pm in Argentina.
