While Flamengo fans were still celebrating the draw, River’s regreting the goal, that would make them play an extra time, Gabigol comes in with a clear shot to mark the victory goal, leaving Argentine fans to astonish, whit there misfortune, while the Brazilians, at the stadium, in Brazil and around the world, exploded with joy.
