Portugal become the final qualifier for the World Cup

Portugal have became the final qualifier for the 2007 Rugby World Cup finals. Portugal qualified for its first rugby World Cup after losing to Uruguay 18-12 but winning 24-23 on aggregate on Saturday. The Lobos won the first leg 12-5 in Lisbon two weeks ago, then succeeded in Uruguay, where the Teros had lost only two qualifiers in 14 years.

Portugal filled the 20th and last berth for the World Cup in France in September, joining Pool C with New Zealand, Scotland, Italy and Romania.

Uruguay's hopes of reaching a third World Cup were handicapped after only two minutes, when lock Juan Bado was sent off for foul play at Parque Central.

However, Uruguay soon led 6-0 from penalties by Juan Menchaca and Diego Aguirre. Portugal evened the score by halftime through the boot of flyhalf Duarte Pinto.

Winger Martin Crosa's unconverted try restored Uruguay's lead two minute after the break, but two more Pinto penalties put Portugal ahead by one after 50 minutes.

Uruguay rallied with a converted try by captain and lock Rodrigo Capo to recapture the lead at 18-12 but still trailed on aggregate by a point. The last 16 minutes were hectic as the Teros tried to conjure a score but Portugal's discipline was too good and they now enter the Rugby World Cup Betting Odds.
