Cheering the Goal

In the final of the Copa Libertadores, fans of Brazil’s Flamengo football team cheer as Gabriel Barbosa scores against defending champions River Plate of Argentina. 

Broadcasted on giant screens during a watch party at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, fans watched Flamengo win the Copa Libertadores - South American club football's highest-level competition - for the first time in 38 years. 

Barbosa made this victory possible by scoring two goals in the final few minutes, ensuring a comeback for Flamengo who won the match 2-1. The boy’s painted beard resembles that of his hero, Barbosa.
