Diogo Portela and Ben Robb are the latest players to qualify for the 2022/23 Cazoo World Darts Championship.

Portela won the Central & South America Qualifier in Costa Rica on Sunday evening – although the Brazilian needed a play-off against Jesus Ruben Salate before confirming his place.

Portela won Saturday’s opening event, but a last 16 exit on day two opened the door to his rivals, with Argentina’s Salate defeating Costa Rica’s Silvio Suazo in the second qualifying event.

That left Portela and Salate on six ranking points – a Suazo win in the Sunday final would have seen him qualify ahead of both – and it was the Brazilian who won the play-off to seal his Alexandra Palace return.

Monday saw Robb win through the DartPlayers New Zealand Qualifier to ensure his return to the sport’s biggest tournament in December.
