Rio – One day after the Libertadores title, Fluminense fans were able to celebrate the competition title at the Laranjeiras stadium. Thousands of tricolors occupied the lawn since the early afternoon of this Sunday (5).

Among the tricolors who attended the Flu headquarters, on her father’s shoulders, was little Eloá Santos, just seven years old. The young woman caught attention with her excitement and sang, at the top of her lungs, the songs that rocked Fluminense on their way to the unprecedented Libertadores title.

“In 2008, without her, I was at Maracanã, but this year we couldn’t get tickets and we had to watch from home. I promised her that, if Fluminense were champions, we would come to Laranjeiras to celebrate. It was very emotional to experience that moment with her”, declared Daniel Santos, father of the little tricolor, who commented on his daughter’s excitement.

“She’s a Fluminense fanatic. We usually go to games and whenever I go alone, she complains. She knows all the songs, all the players. She ended up becoming more of a fanatic than me”, he added.

Fluminense were champions of the Libertadores, last Saturday, at Maracanã, by defeating Boca Juniors 2-1. In addition to the party at the stadium, the tricolores celebrated the title at Cinelândia, where there was a big screen and an event organized by the city hall, and also in other parts of the city.

The title won by Fluminense was the first in the history of the Rio club in the competition. In 2008, Tricolor had been defeated by LDU in the tournament’s final on penalties, at Maracanã. At the time, the competition was decided in two games.

Germán Cano and John Kennedy were the main heroes of the conquest. The Argentine scored again and finished the Libertadores as the competition’s top scorer with 13 goals. The young man was once again decisive in the knockout stage and scored the goal that won the Tricolor title.
