The Real Madrid has won his second World Club Cup, although in Yokohama has been worse than a couple of years in Marrakech. Zidane’s needed for an extension to overcome an Kashima Antlers who even came to be winning for a few minutes, taking advantage of the lack of intensity he displayed the Real Madrid.
Everything pointed to a white walkover and in the first few minutes when Benzema was the first goal of the match, taking advantage of the keeper over the area. But Real Madrid was gradually winding down, allowing the Kashima shake the fear and start showing on the lawn that are not without quality players.
The result of those first times, the Japanese side would tie before the break. The ’10’ Japanese, Shibasaki, scored that goal and also scored on the 1-2 in the opening stages of the second act, which Madrid had come out with the same sloppiness. Luckily, a innocent Yamamoto penalty allowed Cristiano Ronaldo momentarily put out the fire with the first of his private account.
The match went to extra time further worsening the image of Real Madrid. First because the referee allowed Sergio Ramos go on the field pocketing the second yellow was going to show, and second because Endo forgave a good chance the minute 93. in Kashima had the chance to make history and finally learned the lesson That a great can not be given second chances.
Benzema, the best whites in Japan, enabled with an extraordinary pass to Cristiano Ronaldo to make it 3-2. The Portuguese was not having his best night and, even so, the ball took home the 4-2 marking and signing the first hattrick in the final of a FIFA Club World Cup. Two clashes in the first half of the extra time and title that took the name of Real Madrid.
So Real Madrid won their second Club World Cup, or its fifth Intercontinental Cup if we have three titles under this name. Without brilliance but showing that in decisive matches and adverse situations, few teams go ahead as does this Madrid of Zinedine Zidane.
