Liverpool, champion of the Club World Cup

Liverpool is the new world champion. The English team began dominating, with a clear chance from Roberto Firmino at the minute of the game. The high pressure, so characteristic of “The Reds”, was displayed with everything in the Khalifa International Stadium. However, little by little Flamengo equalized in possession.

With Bruno Henrique as the most dangerous man on the left, “Mengao” began to make a presence in the rival area. For this reason, Alexander-Arnold could not climb comfortably as he usually does, although he did enjoy a dangerous mid-distance shot that just missed Diego Alves’ right post.

The Brazilian team stood up to Jürgen Klopp’s team, who was surprised by the disposition of the Cariocas. The first half ended with a 0-0 contested both on occasions and in play. Already in the second half, the current Premier League leader came out determined to stay with the final. As in the beginning of the game, Firmino had a clear chance that he failed incredibly against Alves.

Flamengo responded with his best moments in the game, in which they turned Allison into a figure with two great covers. Of course, it was the only thing that the Brazilians would show in the complement, since the stars of the British in attack began to shine and besieged the “Mengao” in their own area.

At 85 ‘, Henderson had one of the clearest before the end with a furious shot that Alves miraculously removed. At that point the British already deserved the advantage on the scoreboard. In 90 ‘, Sadio Mané fell when he faced Alvés alone. The referee charged a penalty in favor of the English, but after consulting with the VAR he not only dismissed that Rafinha had touched Senegalese in the area, but also that there was a fault.

Already in extra time, the superiority of Klopp’s team was even more marked and the German DT’s team scored the only goal of the match thanks to Roberto Firmino (99 ‘). Flamengo went with everything to attack the last minutes, but was unable to reach a draw.
