Rio de Janeiro: 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.

The performance overshadowed Santos` star striker Neymar`s hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Internacional.
