Owen Farrell: Believes England can beat anybody on their day

Owen Farrell believes England's never-say-die attitude was the key to their sensational 38-21 victory over New Zealand.

The England fly-half kicked 17 points as Stuart Lancaster's men ended the All Blacks 20-game unbeaten run at Twickenham.

The win over the world champions came on the back of frustrating defeats to Australia (20-14) and South Africa (16-15) and Farrell hailed the belief of the side.

"The belief has always been there. This win just solidifies that. We know that when we bring our game we can beat anybody," he said.

"We felt the performances were there but we didn't quite get the results we wanted. We felt like it was nearly there

"I know on the outside people didn't think that. But the stuff that has been said on the outside has only made us tighter as a group.

"There is a lot of fight in this team, there is a champions' attitude and it showed out there. The boys put their bodies on the line and really worked hard to put the pressure on.

"We really put in a good performance and it can only do us good going forward. If we stick to our processes and do what we do well, we will challenge any team. If we take our game to them on the day, it doesn't matter who we are playing we are going to trouble them."
