MOST COMMENTED

Argentine club Arsenal, which had not won a title in its 50-year history, won the Copa Sudamericana final on away goals after a 2-1 loss to Club America ended the series 4-4 on aggregate. Club America, the third Mexican team to reach the final in three years, was headed toward victory in Buenos Aires when Martin Andrizziscrambled through its defense before scoring an 83rd minute goal. Arsenal won the first leg, 3-2, in Mexico City.

Club America opened the scoring in the second leg in the 18th minute when Oscar Rojas' cross banged off Arsenal defender Christian Diaz into his own goal.

 

Arsenal's Jose Calderon hit the post twice and Club America goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa saved a strong header from Andres San Martin to keep the Mexican club ahead.

Juan Silva's volley gave Club America a 2-0 lead (4-3 on aggregate) after latching on to a lobbed German Villa pass. But then Andrizzi's strike finally brought a trophy to Arsenal.

Pachuca won the 2006 Copa Sudamericana with a final win over Colo Colo of Chile. In 2005, the Mexico's UNAM Pumas fell to Boca Juniors in a penalty shootout.
