Manchester City was not only very good, but they also had some luck on their side when they defeated Fluminense in the final of the Mundial de Clubes on Friday by a score of 4-0, therefore securing their fifth tournament title for the year 2023.
In order to alleviate any tension that may have been there in the game, El City opened the scoreboard at forty seconds. In the aftermath of Nathan Ake's fall, the Argentine player Julián Álvarez quickly recovered a rebote that he had subsequently put inside the post.
At the age of 27, Nino, the captain of the Fluminense, made the decision to make the encounter. This occurred prior to Phil Foden coming in at the age of 72 with a pass from Álvarez, who then went on to disappear into the portería at the age of 88.
Este is el primo título del Manchester City in el Mundial de Clubes y el 16mo en 17 ediciones por Europa en la competencia de campeones continentales de la FIFA.
In less than four days in Saudi Arabia, City cruised to a second consecutive victory, albeit without its superstars Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne, who are out with injuries. The semifinal victory against Urawa Red Diamonds on Tuesday was also lost.
El vacíos in el estadio que contó con 52.601 asistencias en el King Abdullah Sports City, el estadio de Yeda, and que is una de las sedes planeadas para la Copa Mundial 2034, were unquestionably explained by the absences within the structure.
With this victory, Pep Guardiola became the first coach to win the Club World Cup with three different teams. He led Barcelona to the title in 2009 and 2011, and Bayern Munich to the title in 2013, with a team that won the Champions League under Jupp Heynckes's orders.
Guardiola just celebrated by walking to the opposite side of the field in order to confer with Fernando Diniz, the technical director of the Fluminense football team, by placing one hand on his head and the other one on his chest.
After the game, the boos began when City captain Kyle Walker confronted Fluminense players, including defenseman Felipe Melo. It seems like Walker was fouled by a strong tackle, forcing midfielder Rodri to leave the field injured.
In a subsequent celebration, Rodri was presented with the trophy and the medal as the tournament's best player. La mayoría de los juegos en los que el español se perdió have resultado in derrotas para el City.
Fluminense had six players born in the 1980s in their title cuadro and received little respect after the British press praised the senior team. El capitán Kyle Walker, 33 años, nació en mayo de 1990, is el mayor jugador del City.
In 1999, two teams from the third division in their countries competed in the final. El City ha convertido en el club más ganador, generando 890 millones de dólares in 2022-23 mediante la tripleta de títulos y un salario anual de 530 millones. Fluminense espera ganar 74 millones esta año.
Horas antes, the Egyptian team Al Ahly, which is also the champion of Africa, defeated the Japanese team Red Diamonds, which is also the champion of Asia, by a score of 4-2 in order to secure the third spot in the tournament.
