Deco awarded Player of the Week

Rio de Janeiro, March 10: Leading Fluminense to an impressive win over Argentina’s Boca Juniors this week, veteran midfielder Deco was named player of the week by the tournament’s governing body.

In his team’s 2-1 win over Boca Juniors, ending the Argentinean’s 36-game home undefeated streak, Deco served a precision assist to teammate Fred and later scored the winner.
