Ronaldo breaks record as Bale fires Madrid to Club World Cup final

Club World Cup

Real only narrowly avoided a catastrophic defeat to Abu Dhabi side Al Jazira, who took a remarkable 1-0 lead at halftime in a chaotic, action-packed semi-final which the double European champions eventually won 2-1.

A better advert for VAR came when a second "goal" for Al Jazira was disallowed for offside. Substitutes: Khaled Al Senaani (for Khaseif, 51) 7, Eissa Mohamed (for Khalifa, 60) 6, Ahmed Rabia (for Al Hosani, 72) 6.Real Madrid: Keylor Navas 6, Marcelo 7, Raphael Varane 6, Nacho 6, Achraf Hakimi 6, Casemiro 6, Mateo Kovacic 6, Luka Modric 6, Isco 7, Cristiano Ronaldo 7, Karim Benzema 7. "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. "We are never complacent and you can never take your foot off the pedal with sport - we have to sustain the momentum".

The Portuguese, who was recently named the world player of the year for a joint-record fifth time, became the top scorer in the history of Club World Cup by netting for the sixth time in three separate tournament appearances. "They reinforce the value of sport and engender significant national pride".

"I've had the chance to win the Club World Cup with Real Madrid and also with Manchester United". The victor, scored by super sub Gareth Bale, sealed the end of the dream for Al Jazira.

This will be Madrid's third final in the last four editions (2014 and 2016) and they will be gunning for their third Club World Cup title.
