Moises Duque booted the winning penalty kick between the uprights on the final play Saturday to give Brazil a shocking 24-23 upset of the United States in the Americas Rugby Championship.

Winless host Brazil stunned the top of the table Eagles in an epic triumph for the South American side and a devastating defeat for the US squad. The outcome opens the door for the winner of Sunday’s Canada at Argentina match to seize the lead in the round-robin event with only one week of matches remaining. Saturday’s other result saw host Uruguay hold off Chile 23-20.
