Glasgow 2014: England to face New Zealand in netball semi-finals
England will take on Pool A winners New Zealand in the netball semi-finals on Saturday after guaranteeing the runners-up spot in Pool B.
Third-placed South Africa's 64-40 defeat by world champions Australia on Wednesday ended any chances of leapfrogging England in their group.
Without anything riding on the result, England thrashed Barbados 69-27 in their final Pool B match.
Australia will face Pool A runners-up Jamaica in the other semi-final.
|England's Commonwealth Games semi-final heartaches|
|1998 - Lost to New Zealand (won bronze)|
|2002 - Lost to Australia (won bronze)|
|2006 - Lost to Australia (came fourth)|
|2010 - Lost to New Zealand (won bronze)|
South Africa could have matched England's total of six points if England had lost to Barbados, but England would still have finished higher in the head-to-head after beating South Africa 41-35 on Sunday.
England have now reached the semi-finals in all five tournaments since netball was introduced to the Games in 1998.
But they will be underdogs against the Kiwis, who are aiming to win a third successive Commonwealth title.
England's only defeat in the competition so far came in a 48-49 reverse to Australia on Saturday.
