Key moments from the All Blacks-England Rugby World Cup semifinal clash in Yokohama.

2nd minute
An absolutely storming start for England. The All Blacks can’t find any response to a frantic attack from the English and eventually, Manu Tuilagi dives over the try-line for the opening score to the right of the uprights. Owen Farrell converts to make it England 7-0.

8th minute
A Beauden Barrett pass is intercepted by Manu Tuilagi and England break down the left. Scott Barrett saves the day by running down Jonny May to save a certain try. May loses the ball and New Zealand are able to win a penalty.

17th minute
All Blacks have an attacking lineout inside England’s half, their first chance to set up play in their opponent’s half but England steal the lineout ball and clears upfield.

25th minute
Sam Underhill goes over the try-line for England’s second of the night but after a TMO review, it’s called back due to a clear case of obstruction on attack. Tom Curry took out Sam Whitelock before the key pass which put Underhill into space.
