The netball game between England and New Zealand was close, but England pulled away in dramatic fashion in the final to win 46-40. Australia, which lost to England in the group stage, wound up just edging out Jamaica 57-54.
The final takes place at 17:00 BST. There has never been a World Cup final without 11-time world champions Australia, who also won Commonwealth gold in Birmingham last year. An emotional Layla Guscoth, the Roses’ defender and co-captain, told BBC Sport: "I can't believe it. We've had so much criticism over the last year [after no medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games]. We are so grateful to get the chance to play in a World Cup final. We celebrate, we rest, and we come back tomorrow."
