November 23, 2019. In Lima, Peru, River Plate (ARG) beat Flamengo 1-0 until the 42nd minute of the second half. However, Gabigol turned the game around and ended the dream of a second Libertadores championship for the Argentines. A player on the Buenos Aires team at the time, Nicolás de la Cruz was moved to tears. Now as a red-and-black, the Uruguayan wants to “conquer with those who made him cry”.

— In three or five minutes, everything went down. Flamengo happened to win, and the match was very balanced. We had a great Libertadores and so did I. They had suffered little and with us they suffered more than they had really suffered during the Libertadores. Obviously now there is the expectation of winning it also with those who made me suffer in 2019, made me cry a little because no one likes to lose, especially a Libertadores final — said De La Cruz.


— Gabi plays, Giorgian (De Arrascaeta) the same, but always with respect and in a good mood. I believe that the unity of the group and the participation of everyone will be very important to achieve all the objectives set for this semester. We have a great squad, a great technical committee and, together with the directors, we will align ourselves with the same objective and try to achieve it — added De La Cruz, in an interview with Conmebol.


OTHER PLAYER FROM THE FLAMENGO PICKS ON DE LA CRUZ

It's not just the 2019 Flamengo players who joke with From La Cruz on behalf of Libertadores. In the red and black squad, another athlete has already taken away the Uruguayan's 'Eternal Glory', but in the under-20 category. Luiz Araújo was at São Paulo, champions in 2016, 1-0 over Liverpool (URU). The Mengão midfielder was one of the team's promises at the time.


— There are some jokes with Luiz Araújo because he won me a Libertadores final in the under-20s in the final. We are there, with a good wave. This is good to understand a little, it helps in bringing together the group — added De La Cruz.

Interestingly, Flamengo also won the Libertadores U20, last Sunday (17), against Boca Juniors (ARG). Luiz Araújo's São Paulo title took place in Paraguay, while Rubro-Negro won glory in the city of Maldonado, Uruguay.

Flamengo beat Atlético-GO 2-1 in the Brasileirão debut. From la Cruz opened the scoring in the match with a great free kick. This was his first goal with the red and black shirt, and the Uruguayan was publicly praised by Petkovic. One of the great specialists in free kicks with the Flamengo shirt, the Serbian used social media to praise De la Cruz's shot. The Uruguayan placed the ball in the angle in the right corner of the Atlético-GO goalkeeper and was disenchanted.

"Hallelujah! Was it worth DOUBLE the ticket or not with that great goal from De La Cruz? Flamengo needed a a show like that", published the red-black idol on his official Twitter page (currently X).


There were 15 games - two of which were friendlies in the pre-season - before De la Cruz managed to score his first goal with a Flamengo shirt. A goal that was very similar to others throughout his career.


In 2019, for the Libertadores, the Uruguayan scored a great goal from a dead ball in River Plate's 2-2 with Internacional in Beira-Rio. In 2022, in Uruguay's friendly with Canada, he also scored a free kick in the 2-0 victory in Slovakia. And last year, in the Argentine team's farewell season, he hit an even more distant shot in the 2-0 victory over Colón in the Argentine Championship.


The new favorite of Flamengo fans is preparing for the today's match (17), being one of the options for Tite to field against São Paulo for the second round of the national tournament. The ball starts rolling at Maracanã at 9:40 pm (Brasília time).
