Real Madrid eye 5th trophy

Real Madrid eye 5th trophy

Real Madrid avoided humiliation against Al Jazira as Gareth Bale's late victor earned them a 2-1 victory and a place in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup.

The Portuguese star, who equalised for Real after Al Jazira had taken a first-half lead through Brazilian forward Romarinho, now has 6 goals to his name in the competition. A disallowed goal early in the second half looked to have given the UAE champions an unthinkable two-goal cushion, but Madrid capitalised to claw their way back in the game and ultimately prevail through goals by Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

The match began in a dramatic style as the hosts Al Jazira managed to keep a clean slate till the 31st minute.

Of the prospect of winning a fifth trophy this year, he added: "I don't think (this would be the club's best year) because Real Madrid is a big club, but it motivates me and all the players". "We are never complacent and you can never take your foot off the pedal with sport - we have to sustain the momentum".

Whistleblower To Dems: Flynn Promised Biz Associate He'd Gut Russia Sanctions
The change would allow a business venture Flynn had worked on - nuclear power plants - to be built with the former partner. The whistleblower was "extremely uncomfortable" with the situation, and made notes about it and Copson's name.

Zidane's squad travelled fresh from a 5-0 win against Sevilla in La Liga at the weekend and the coach indicated that both Gareth Bale and Raphael Varane could be involved in the game, which kicks off at 9pm local time (1700 GMT) at the Zayed Sports City Stadium.

Given that he scored, Real Madrid won and he became the all-time top scorer in FIFA Club World Cup tournaments, it's probably fair to say that the joke was not on him.

With the win Real Madrid go through to Saturday's final in which they will play Brazilian side Gremio.
