Boca champs

Boca Juniors has traditionally been a powerhouse South American club, but between 1978 and 2000, the club had not backed that claim up with success on the biggest stage in this hemisphere.

Now, though, Boca's mantle is full and there is little room for argument. Boca Juniors lifted the Copa Libertadores trophy on Wednesday after a 2-0 win over Gremio.

After winning consecutive titles in 1977-78, Boca Juniors has now won Libertadores titles in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2007.

Boca left little room for error this time around. The Argentines routed Gremio 3-0 in La Bombonera and won the series on a 5-0 aggregate.

Best team in the world in the 2000's without a doubt, euro teams included. Just look at the titles and the players, it's obvious. I fear for us if Riquelme, as rumored, is un-retiring for Copa America. He is the best playmaker in the world right now...
