New Zealand is guaranteed to better its seeding at the World Junior Men's Team Squash Championships in Doha.
The 11th seeded Kiwi team is through to the playoff for ninth place, after a hard fought 2-1 win over Brazil.
New Zealand was on the back foot early against the South Americans, with Jonny Barnett losing the opening match to Brazilian number one Josemar Silva 11-7, 11-2, 11-6 in 25 minutes.
Things then started to look grim when Zac Millar lost the first game of his match against Pedro Veiga. However, the Kiwi number two bounced back to win 8-11, 11-8, 11-2, 11-5 and push the tie into a decider.
Ben Grindrod then ensured a top 10 finish for New Zealand with a clinical 11-7, 11-3, 11-3 demolition of Cassiano Silva.
New Zealand will play 12th seeded Kuwait in the 9th place playoff.
