[LIBERTADORES CUP] Club America was last in the Mexican First Division this spring, but it's through to the semifinals of South America's Libertadores Cup thanks to its 2-1 aggregate victory over famed Santos of Brazil.

No Mexican team has won the Libertadores Cup, but America is in the final four despite losing the second leg Thursday, 1-0 in Brazil on a goal by Kleber Pereira.

Atlas, Mexico's other Mexican quarterfinalist, wasn't so lucky. It went into its second leg with Boca Juniors at home tied 2-2 on aggregate but fell, 3-0, in Guadalajara on three first-half goals from Martin Palermo.

LDU became the first Ecuadorean team to reach the final four since 1998 when it won, 5-3, on penalties over Argentina's San Lorenzo after both legs ended in 1-1 draws.

A stoppage-time goal from Washington -- his second goal of the game -- gave Fluminense a 3-1 win over fellow Brazilian club Sao Paulo and a 3-2 aggregate victory.
