England coach Eddie Jones has named an unchanged starting lineup for the World Cup final against the Springboks in Yokohama on Saturday.
The team, led by centre Owen Farrell, is exactly the same as the one that outplayed New Zealand in the semi-finals last weekend.
Farrell will continue in his 10-12 partnership with flyhalf George Ford, who returned to the starting lineup against the All Blacks after being named on the bench in the quarter-final against Australia.
The only change to the match-day 23 comes on the bench as replacement scrumhalf Ben Spencer makes his first World Cup appearance in place of the injured Willi Heinz.
England – 15 Elliot Daly, 14 Anthony Watson, 13 Manu Tuilagi, 12 Owen Farrell (c), 11 Jonny May, 10 George Ford, 9 Ben Youngs, 8 Billy Vunipola, 7 Sam Underhill, 6 Tom Curry, 5 Courtney Lawes, 4 Maro Itoje, 3 Kyle Sinckler, 2 Jamie George, 1 Mako Vunipola.
Subs: 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie, 17 Joe Marler, 18 Dan Cole, 19 George Kruis, 20 Mark Wilson, 21 Ben Spencer, 22 Henry Slade, 23 Jonathan Joseph.
