Brazil defeated Argentina 4-3 on penalties to win the Superclasico de Las Americas on Wednesday (local time), a trophy contested by national team players with local clubs in Argentina and Brazil and excluding top stars like Argentina's Lionel Messi.

The trophy was settled by penalties after the teams finished two-leg series level 3-3 on aggregate.

Argentina won the second match 2-1 with two second-half goals from Ignacio Scocco, who scored from a penalty in the 82nd minute, then saved Argentina with a winner in the 90th.

Fred scored for Brazil in the 84th to make it 1-1, which looked like it would give Brazil the trophy without penalties.

Brazil won 2-1 in September at Brazil.
