Sandro lands Copa Libertadores

Sandro has won South America's top prize with our club partners Internacional of Brazil.

Our summer signing played the full 90 minutes as Inter won the second leg of the Copa Libertadores - the equivalent of the Champions League in South American football - 3-2 against Chivas of Mexico to make it a 5-3 aggregate victory for the team from Porto Alegre.

The midfielder saw an early half-chance saved before Chivas levelled the tie overall at 2-2 with a goal just before half-time.

But Inter turned it around in the second half with goals from Rafael Sobis, Leandro Damiao and Giuliano putting them 5-2 up on aggregate, much to the delight of over 50,000 fans in Inter's Beira-Rio Stadium.

It eventually ended 5-3 on aggregate and Brazilian legend Pele was on hand to present the trophy.

Sandro is scheduled to arrive here at Spurs next week.
