Portugal shocked the Rugby World Cup in Toulouse, but a losing bonus point was enough to advance Fiji to the quarter-finals against England.

The loss also confirmed Australia’s elimination from the World Cup, the first time the Wallabies have been eliminated before the knockout stage.

Fiji needed only one point from the game to advance to the last eight.

They led late on, 23-17, but Rodrigo Marta’s converted try gave Portugal its first World Cup triumph.

The Fijians trailed by seven points twice in the second half, but touchdowns from Levani Botia and Mesake Doge twice brought them level, and two Frank Lomani penalties edged them into a winning position – only for Portugal to pull off a spectacular late comeback.
