Portugal Pip USA to RWC 2023
|Portugal players celebrating after full time|
Portugal showed real intent as they secured the final Rugby World Cup spot with a spirited draw with USA Eagles in Dubai.
Portugal came out of the blocks firing and led by 1 point at half time. Usa were not easy to put away and rallied back scoring a converted try in the second half and could have possibly sealed their qualification were it not for a last minute penalty that earned the Foxes a much needed draw.
The final result took the global rugby scene by surprise as Portugal qualified for just their second RWC Tournament. They went through on points difference over the USA.
They join Pool C that has Fiji, Australia, Wales and Georgia at the Tournament in France next year.
