  1. The Club World Cup title goes to South America for the first time since 2006 and nobody could argue that the Brazilian side did not deserve it on the day. Chelsea had the opportunities but they failed to take them and it's delight for Corinthians who win the final in Japan. Thanks for your company and I'll see you all again soon.
