South Africa defeat host country Japan 20-3 to be eligible for the Rugby World Cup semi-finals.

Japanese lovers in Tokyo were upset once they failed to make it into the semi-final round. Japan swept throughout the championship, beating high contenders Ireland and Scotland and winning six successive rugby matches.

This was Japan’s first quarter-final in a Rugby World Cup.

The South Africans led only 5-3 at halftime but scored three tries in total.

They’ll now face Wales from the semi-finals.
