Corinthians win first Libertadores Cup

 Forward Emerson scored two second-half goals to fire Corinthians to a 3-1 aggregate victory over Argentina’s Boca Juniors and secure their first South American Libertadores Cup at a packed Pacaembu Stadium.

The Brazilian club’s 2-0 win in the second leg of the final followed a 1-1 draw at La Bombonera in Buenos Aires last week. Emerson struck nine minutes into the second half, pouncing on playmaker Danilo’s back-heel after Boca’s defense failed to clear the ball from a free kick. The 33-year-old then doubled the lead in the 73rd minute, seizing on an errant pass from Boca defender Rolando Schiavi to race forward and coolly slot the ball home.
