Un día como hoy, hace 12 años, Liga Deportiva Universitaria ganó la Copa Libertadores.

José Francisco Cevallos espera bajo los tres palos. Washington, de Fluminense, remata el que fue el tiro penal definitivo. La pelota es desviada por el arquero ‘Albo’. El mítico estadio Maracaná palidece ante el grito: ‘Liga campeón de América’, de un millar de hinchas de la ‘U’ que asistieron a Brasil.
Es una imagen de 2008, pero que se mantendrá para la eternidad en la hinchada de Liga Deportiva Universitaria y del fútbol de Ecuador.
Hasta hoy ningún otro equipo del mundo ha dado la vuelta olímpica en la cancha más gloriosa del balompié ‘auriverde’.

¡Va por ti Ecuador!

El sueño de los ‘Universitarios’ se empezó a forjar el 20 de febrero de 2008 en el estadio ‘Casa Blanca’, ante el mismo rival que derrotó en la final, cinco meses después.
Previo a esas dos noches mágicas de Quito y Sao Paulo, ante el ‘Flu’, el equipo dirigido por el argentino Edgardo ‘Patón’ Bauza dejó en el camino a equipos como Libertad (Paraguay) y Arsenal (Argentina) en primera fase. Estudiantes (Argentina) en octavos de final. San Lorenzo (Argentina) en cuartos y América (México) en la semifinal.
La final de ida fue ganada en Quito con marcador de 4-2 y en la revancha, en el Maracaná, perdieron 1-3.
Con el marcador glogal de 5-5 la definición fue a los tiros penales. Ahí José Francisco Cevallos escribió, con letras de oro, su último capítulo en su carrera futbolística al atajar tres tiros desde el punto penal y llevar a Liga a la obtención del primer y único título de Ecuador en la Copa Libertadores.
