Super Saturday 2014: You won't want to move on June 14 as England face New Zealand, it's day three of the first Test and England face Italy in the World Cup

Next Saturday promises to be a brilliant day of sport for England's football, rugby and cricket fans

Forget heading out this Friday night, you’ll want to be fresh for a stellar day of sport that takes place from dawn till dusk on Saturday.

It’s an early start too, with Stuart Lancaster’s rugby team hoping to take revenge for the extremely tight 20-15 defeat they suffered at the hands of the All Blacks last week.

Conrad Smith scored a try to sink 14-man England right at the death, but an understrength England side were brilliant in Auckland. New Zealand may have a 20-year unbeaten run at Eden Park but England came as close as any to breaking that spell, leading for large periods thanks to the boot of Freddie Burns.

Lancaster and Co will be raring to go on Saturday morning, joined by cavalry from Northampton and Saracens who were unable to play in the first Test.

It’s all to play for, but make sure you set your alarm for the 8.35am kick-off.

Taking charge of his first Test series in his second spell in charge, new England coach Peter Moores will be desperate to get off to a win against Sri Lanka.

Saturday will be the third day of the Test and this new-look England team should have all to play for. The weather for days one and two is expected to be overcast, giving England’s swing bowlers a chance, if they get the ball.

Just as the curtain is closing on another day at Lord’s football fans will then get the chance to have a look at their Group D rivals, Uruguay and Costa Rica.

Uruguay struggled through qualifying and Luis Suarez has been struggling with injury, so it will be a good chance to gauge Roy Hodgson’s chances for the other two matches.

Then it’s the main event. All the waiting and talk will be over as England try to find their way in the jungle against the Italians.

Roy Hodgson’s team have come in for a bit of criticism for the way they have performed in the three warm-up matches, but that won’t matter a jot if England are able to get a positive result in Manaus.

That kicks off at 11pm.

If that doesn't whet your appetite then it's the semi-finals of Wimbeldon warm-up tournament Queen's.

With new coach Amelie Mauresmo on board, last year's winner Andy Murray should still be in the competition and finding some form ahead of the big tournament.
