Barça are champions of the world! The Club World Cup ended with a 0-4 victory over Santos FC. Goals by Messi (2), Xavi, and Cesc had things under control extremely early.
My quick awards:
Man of the Match: The Whole Team. Don’t even try to argue with me on this one. All-around brilliance that made Santos look like second division strugglers is nothing to scoff at. Santos are good.
Goal of the Match: Obviously it’s Messi’s 2nd and the team’s 4th. What absurd control.
Defensive Moment of the match: Dani Alves stealing the ball off of Neymar after making a tremendous run back; that tackle led to the first goal.
