Estudiantes: Copa Libertadores champions!

I'm a day late on this one, but I don't think I get many readers from South America anyways. The Argentine side beat Brazil's Cruzeiro 2-1 in the second leg after a scoreless first leg to win the tournament.

I think I care more about the Juan Sebastian Veron sighting as much as anything...

Anyways, congratulations boys!

Veron is at the top of his career.

Well, I'm a south american reader. I'm very proud of my team, Estudiantes.

Brazilians claimed they were the champions after the first leg draw.

For the Argentines, this is the 22th title out of 50. For Estudiantes, this is the fourth.

Journalist from Buenos Aires still don't recognize Estudiantes as a "big" team. They rather keep that word for teams from their city.
