Pendle's Natalie Metcalf and her England team-mates will face Australia in their first Netball World Cup final after their historic victory over defending champions New Zealand today.

The match was level after every quarter but England pulled away in dramatic fashion in the last to win 46-40 in Cape Town.

Australia, who lost to England in the group stage, beat Jamaica 57-54.

The final takes place on Sunday at 5pm and will be live on BBC Two.

There has never been a World Cup final without 11-time world champions Australia, who also won Commonwealth gold in Birmingham last year.

They will noiw face an unbeaten England side looking for their biggest title since the 2018 Commonwealth Games - when they beat Australia to win gold.

Co-captain Metcalf told BBC Sport: "It is just pure pride to wear the red dress and line up alongside the girls every day.

"We've got to celebrate and enjoy the moment, what a moment it is for England netball.

"But we need to make sure we stick to the processes and remain consistent as we have done the entire tournament."
