Real Madrid claim Club World Cup, Al Ain win silver

Al Ain coach Zoran Mamic said Real were far too good for his side despite creating those early chances which forward Hussein El Shahat squandered, missing the target with one effort and seeing Ramos clear his shot off the line moments later.

Ballon d'Or victor Modric gave Real a 14th-minute lead, and Marcos Llorente's fantastic volley wrapped up the win on the hour mark before Sergio Ramos' late third and Tsukasa Shiotani's consolation.

However, the Spanish La Liga giants did qualify for the final of this year's Club World Cup after defeating Japanese club Kashima 3-1 the same Wednesday evening, December 19.

"We are also here thanks to Zidane".

Madrid, who have won the last three Uefa Champions Leagues, have now also won the last three Club World Cups.

It marked a first trophy for Santiago Solari on the Real Madrid bench, just 54 days after he took charge at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Tsukasa Shiotani scored a late goal for Al Ain in the 86 minute of the match; however, Yahia Nader's own goal in the injury time saw Real Madrid win the FIFA World Cup Final 2018, as the scoreline read 4-1.

"I got that", he told reporters when asked if he was aware of the jeers. "It will be hard to match in the future".

"Marcos has always worked a lot, and he deserves the credit".

This year, Real Madrid won the FIFA World Cup trophy after securing a comfortable victory over their opponents Al Ain.

Khalid Issa, Al Ain goalkeeper, said that Al Ain is looking forward to the coming seasons, as its players still aim for more success.

Real Madrid then had numerous additional opportunities to score over the remainder of the first half, but a shot by Lucas Vasquez grazed the woodwork and Karim Benzema sent a close-range shot over the crossbar.

"I don't know if it's true, but for now the player has no intention of leaving Madrid".
