Quick Report: Barcelona win Club World Cup

19 December 2009 19:33

(GSM) - FC Barcelona have won the FIFA Club World Cup for their first time in history following a 2-1 victory over Argentinian side Estudiantes. Extra time was needed to decide the match.

Estudiantes, who had beaten Korean outfit Pohang Steelers in the semi finals, surprised Barcelona with an opening goal from Mauro Boselli in the 37th minute.

In the second half, Barcelona began a frantic hunt for the equaliser and were rewarded in the 89th minute when Pedro chipped keeper Albil for 1-1.

Estudiantes looked exhausted at this point and it was no surprise that Barcelona dominated in extra time.

The winning goal came after 110 minutes, when a right-winged cross was chested home by World Player of the Year Lionel Messi.

Barcelona lost both of their previous intercontinental finals. In 2006, Internacional of Porto Alegre lifted the trophy and Sao Paulo were the better side in the 1992 Toyota Cup.
