Fluminense’s top scorer at Libertadores, Cano says: ‘I always dreamed of scoring in the final’

Cano “did the L” in the Libertadores final, as he had done 12 other times in this edition of the tournament. The Argentinian opened the scoring in the 2-1 victory against Boca Juniors this Saturday (4) at the Maracanã, which guaranteed the club the continental title. And he said he dreamed about it.

“I always dreamed of scoring a goal in this final, of helping Fluminense become champion. It’s a dream come true, for me and for the club,” Cano said.

At 35, the player said his team deserved the trophy in a difficult match. Advíncula equalized for Boca in the second half and John Kennedy only secured victory in the first half of extra time.

“We played very well, I think we deserved this victory. It was a victory for work and heart,” Cano said.

In goal, Keno played with Arias on the right, advanced from the edge and crossed behind. Cano turned his body and kicked hard, with Romero having no time to react.

It was the Argentine’s 13th goal in this edition of the Libertadores and the striker’s 16th for Fluminense in the competition, overtaking Fred as the club’s top scorer in the continental competition.
