What a game that was and the crowd in Kamaishi were treated to a phenomenal World Cup upset there as Uruguay overcame Fiji.
That’s just Uruguay’s third win in World Cup history and by far their biggest with no disrespect to Spain and Georgia.
Fiji takes two bonus points from it, but their quarter-final hopes are as good as gone…

Suddenly, anything is possible.

We are devastated with you Captain. Standing beside and with you as you regroup!
30 – @RugbyUruguay have picked up their third @rugbyworldcup victory and their first since 2003, their tally of 30 points against Fiji was their most in a match at the tournament. Vamos.#RWC2019 #FIJvURU pic.twitter.com/LoxJc1Q3HM— OptaJonny (@OptaJonny) September 25, 2019
I want to watch Uruguay celebrate this forever. This has been amazing. Vamos Los Teros.— Squidge Rugby (@SquidgeRugby) September 25, 2019
One of the greatest ever World Cup stories. My goodness, Uruguay beat Fiji. And in Kamaisha of all places, where they built a stadium to honour those killed in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami @ITVRugby pic.twitter.com/bivF1Rbykt— Nick Mullins (@andNickMullins) September 25, 2019
