Two late daggers

Just when it looked like America was going to down to Brazil with a shot of advancing to the Copa Libertadores quarterfinals, disaster struck.


Flamengo scored goals in the 88th and 90th minutes to beat America 4-2 in Estadio Azteca. Flamengo now needs just a draw to knock out America and move on in the Copa Libertadores. Even a one-goal loss would see the Brazilians through to the next round.

America's lone saving grace this year was Copa Libertadores. The league campaign has been the worst-ever in their storied history. And now the club's poor form has finally carried over internationally.

Wouldn't a 2-0 America win still send the Brazilians through due to the away goal?

What's the ruling this year from CONMEBOL.

I hope America can get team ready for the next season and dominate like all their fans love and know, hopefully we can keep certain players and bring in players during the summer transfer window.
