The Colombian, who became the second top scorer of the Gallardo era, told the continent that he will be a father together with journalist Anita Caicedo.
Rafael Santos Borré appeared to reassure River after a hectic start at Morumbí with the goal against Enzo Pérez that upset Marcelo Gallardo’s team from the start in the duel against San Pablo, at the restart of the Copa Libertadores.
But the Colombian, always attentive in the area, appeared at the touch to put the bow on a beautiful triangulation that he started himself, followed with Matías Suárez from Cordoba and continued with an overflow and deadly center behind Julián Álvarez, the Doll’s spoiled child.
So with a gentle touch, Borré reached his 39th goal at River to become, alone, as the second top scorer of the Gallardo era, with one more than Ignacio Scocco, now at Newell’s, and two less than Lucas Alario, longtime Bayer Leverkusen.
But the goal was not only celebrated by the Colombian striker, whose pass is owned by Atlético de Madrid. The celebration had a very special dedication. As soon as the ball bounced off the net after signing the boards, he took the ball, put it under his shirt and gave it a kiss.
Yes, Borré made public the pregnancy of his wife, the journalist Anita Caicedo. Now all of America, and why not the world, knows that the Colombian will be a father. Later, he made the “crazy” gesture, turning his right index finger against his temple and rounded off the celebration with a heart formed with his hands, in the best Angel Di María style.
Borré and Caicedo have been in a couple since the times when the Barranquilla-born striker played for Deportivo Cali.
They got married in May 2016 and had been waiting for a long time to have a family. Now the baby is on the way and Borré welcomed him in Morumbí. Apparently, the small or small came with a goal under the arm.
