The 10 players to have won both the Champions League and Copa Libertadores

Neymar won the Champions League with Barcelona - and the Copa Libertadores with Santos

The Copa Libertadores final on Saturday evening produced one of the craziest five minutes of football we've possibly ever seen.

With River Plate 1-0 up and seemingly comfortable going into the dying embers of the game, Flamengo took it upon themselves to break Argentine hearts.

Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa equalised in the 89th-minute, before striking the winner two minutes later into injury time.

In the fifth minute of stoppage time, Gabigol was then giving his marching orders for irking the referee after Exequiel Palacios was also sent off for kicking Bruno Henrique.

South American football, eh? You can always guarantee entertainment and football from the continent is beginning to gain more popularity across Europe.

The Copa Libertadores final was even shown live on BBC 2 in England, as CONMEBOL look to penetrate the European market.

So with that in mind, it got us thinking, which players have lifted club football's biggest prizes in both South America and Europe?

Well, you'll be surprised to know that only 10 players have won both the Copa Libertadores and Champions League in their careers.

Four of them also won the 2002 World Cup with Brazil!

The 10 Champions League and Copa Libertadores winners

Rafinha - Bayern Munich and Flamengo

We'll start with the latest addition to the list. Rafinha played the full 90 minutes for Flamengo against River Plate on Saturday.

The right-back also lifted Europe's premiere crown back in 2013, when Bayern defeated Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

Neymar - Barcelona and Santos

The world's most expensive player forged his reputation at Santos, where his brilliance as a teenager secured the club the 2011 Copa Libertadoes - he scored six goals in the tournament.

Neymar then helped deliver Barcelona their second treble in 2015, scoring the third and final goal in the 3-1 Champions League final win over Juventus.

Walter Samuel - Inter Milan and Boca Juniors

The Argentine defender was a key man in Boca's Copa Libertadores win back in 2000, with Samuel moving to Roma the same year.

He then moved to Inter in 2005, with the no-nonsense centre-back finally adding the Champions League to his collection in 2010.

Dida - AC Milan and Gremio

A Brazilian legend and one of the four on the list to have won the World Cup as well. Dida secured South American glory with Gremio in 1995, before journeying over to Europe.

With AC Milan, the enigmatic goalkeeper won the Champions League in 2003 and 2007. Not a bad trophy collection, eh?

Danilo - Real Madrid and Santos

Part of the all-conquering Santos team that was spearheaded by Neymar, Danilo's array of winners' medals isn't half bad.

With Los Blancos, he lifted the Champions League in both 2016 and 2017. He could add to that European trophy haul with Juventus in the near future as well.

Ronaldinho - Barcelona and Atletico Mineiro

Another World Cup winner! Like Rafinha, Ronaldinho won the Copa Libertadores in the twilight years of his career after securing the Champions League with Barca in 2006.

Alongside current Everton star Bernard, Ronaldinho's majestic brilliance secured Mineiro South American's most coveted prize in 2013.

Juan Pablo Sorin - Juventus and River Plate

A blast from the past. Sorin was part of Juve's Champions League winning side of 1996 and he went on to lift the Copa Libertadores trophy the very same year with River Plate.

A European champion on May 22 and a South American on June 26. A memorable summer for the long-haired Argentine!

Cafu - AC Milan and Sao Paolo

The third World Cup winner and one of the greatest to have played the game. Cafu is the only player on the list to have won the Copa Libertadores twice, a feat he achieved in 1992 and 1993 with Sao Paolo.

His maiden Champions League win came in 2007, alongside Dida.

Carlos Tevez - Man Utd and Boca Juniors

The Boca legend secured South America's biggest prize with his hometown club in 2003, before his move to West Ham.

Tevez then secured his one and only Champions League five years later with United, beating Chelsea in that famous final out in Moscow.

Roque Junior - AC Milan and Palmeiras

The fourth and final World Cup winner. Junior was part of AC Milan's Champions League-winning side of 2003 and he came off the bench in the final against Juventus.

Junior also secured his Copa Libertaodres triumph with Palmeiras in 19999.

So there you have it, 10 footballers who's trophy collections will make most across globe green with envy.

Dida, Ronaldinho, Cafu and Junior really are part of an exclusive club and it's hard to see anyone matching their achievements for quite some time.
