England face New Zealand in the first semi-final of the Rugby World Cup.
England head coach Eddie Jones has sparked controversy throughout the week after making an incredible claim on Tuesday that England were being spied on as they prepared for the semi-final.
The two sides will meet for the first time since 1999 in this competition, after New Zealand won that group stage clash 30-16.
Jones insisted that New Zealand have “pressure chasing them down the street” as the All Blacks go in search of a third successive World Cup title.
England coasted past Australia, but Jones has made changes to the team with George Ford recalled at fly-half, meaning captain Owen Farrell moves to inside centre.
Jones has also reunited the 10-12 combination which saw England beat Argentina, USA and Tonga in the group stages.
New Zealand XV: Beauden Barrett; Sevu Reece, Jack Goodhue, Anton Lienert-Brown, George Bridge; Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith; Joe Moody, Codie Taylor, Nepo Laulala, Brodie Retallick, Sam Whitelock, Scott Barrett, Ardie Savea, Kieran Read (capt).
Replacements: Dane Coles, Ofa Tuungafasi, Angus Ta’avao, Patrick Tuipulotu, Sam Cane, TJ Perenara, Sonny Bill Williams, Jordie Barrett.
