Incredible full-time scenes as Portugal earn last-minute penalty to qualify for Rugby World Cup

There were some incredible full-time scenes as Portugal netted a last-minute penalty to draw 16-16 with the United States and, therefore, book their place at the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Samuel Marquez’s 82nd-minute penalty meant the men in red finished top of the group ahead of the Eagles with a superior points difference.

The full time scenes were pretty amazing.

Reacting to the amazing ending, one fan wrote: “This kicker has some serious b***s”,

“16 years after their first appearance in France, Portugal will be back at Rugby World Cup,” commented a second.

A third added: “Portugal have beaten the United States to qualify for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. No USA at the World Cup for the first time since 1995! What a moment for Portugal.”
