Ireland stand on the verge of creating further history when they take on England in today's World Cup semi-final.

Niamh Briggs will lead her team in the last four for the first time and take on an English side who are bidding to reach their fourth consecutive final.

Sunday's decider has been confirmed as a 20,000 sell-out which has seen both semi-finals moved to the Stade Jean-Bouin, home of Stade Francais. A television audience of 1.5million watched France beat South Africa last week and that record number is expected to be surpassed during today's meeting between Ireland and England.

England have been installed as the tournament favourites but Ireland go into the game as one of only two remaining teams with a 100pc winning record.
