Soccer: Cruzeiro win Brazilian Cup on penalties
SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Cruzeiro lifted the Brazilian Cup for a fifth time on Wednesday after beating Flamengo 5-3 on penalties following a goalless second leg.
Diego missed from the spot with Flamengo's third kick and Thiago Neves converted Cruzeiro's final penalty to give the Belo Horizonte club the title and a coveted place in next year’s Copa Libertadores.
The two sides tied the first leg 1-1 in Rio de Janeiro three weeks ago.
