Sao Paulo awarded Copa Sudamericana final
Question of the Day
“Police entered and struck our players with clubs,” Gorosito told Argentine television. “It was crazy. What happened was crazy.”
A Brazilian police officer who identified himself was Major Gonzaga told reporters police were called to break up a fight between Argentine players and Sao Paulo security guards, but that that no one was armed and that police did not act violently.
“We were fighting for 15 minutes with people trained by, and wearing the colors of Sao Paulo. There was no need to do something like this. They were winning the match,” said Tigre keeper Albil.
Romer Osuna, a Bolivian official with CONMEBOL, South America’s governing body of soccer, said Tigre players were afraid to return to the field.
“The Tigre people declined to play because they considered security was not good enough,” Osuna told Fox Sports.
Sao Paulo scored twice in five minutes in the first half _ a left-footed drive from Lucas in the 23rd and a lobbing shot from the right wing by Osvaldo in the 28th.
Sao Paulo, one of Latin America’s most famous clubs, is a three-time winner of the Copa Libertadores, South America’s most prestigious club tournament. It has also won the Club World Cup once, and twice won the Intercontinental Cup, the predecessor to the Club World Cup.
This was the club’s first Copa Sudamericana title.
Tigre was playing in its first international final and has never won the Argentine first-division title.
