Heroic Al Jazira fall just short of causing stunning upset

Having fallen behind to a shock goal against Al Jazira in their Club World Cup semi-final, Real Madrid were toiling to get back into it.

They won La Liga, the Champions League, UEFA and Spanish Super Cup in a thrilling fashion after hitting top form in a four-month spell between April and August, but since then the European champions have faded, understandably tired by a heavy schedule. "The result did not go our way, but that does not matter, this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we will never forget", said Al Jazira fan Ahmed Hamza. Words can not express how happy we are as fans to see our team play Real Madrid.

Heroic Al Jazira fall just short of causing stunning upset

Al Jazira are appearing at the tournament as champions of the host nation the United Arab Emirates, and reached the last four by edging out Auckland City of New Zealand 1-0 and then defeating the Asian champions Urawa Red Diamonds by the same score-line at the weekend.

After Al Jazira had taken an unlikely lead into half-time, Real Madrid unleashed their superstars, with five-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristian Ronaldo netting the equaliser, and in doing so, becoming the FIFA Club World Cup all-time record goal scorer with six goals.
