Two nations will be fully focused on Japan on Saturday as South Africa faces England in the Rugby World Cup final.

The two nations met in 2007 and the Springboks were victorious on that occasion, but the situation could not be more different now.

In 2007, England were written off ahead of the tournament and reached the final against all odds by using a pragmatic game plan.

Many people would regard England as strong favourites this time around and their semi-final performance against New Zealand would have cemented this belief.

The English pulled off a commanding 19-7 victory over the All Blacks and New Zealand's only points came against the run of play after a fortuitous line-out error.

Based on form, The Telegraph confirmed odds of 4/9 for England.

The Springboks headed into this tournament as the dark horses, but they've not dominated the world stage for a long time.
