203: FIFA Club World Cup

15 December 2029
Liverpool, England

Liverpool Manager finally achieved victory in the Club World Cup as he led his Liverpool Squad to success at his third attempt. The Reds swept all before them winning both matches 5-0 and claiming the title for the first time.

In his previous visits he took Jomo Cosmos and Newcastle United Jets to fourth placed finishes so to finally win the event was some achievement.

Well I did it! Finally I have my hands on this title. It was one of my goals to achieve this season and I can cross this off the list now. My first international success too, which has made me consider what I am going to do as my next challenge.

The Teams

C07S05-179

Al-Gharrafa are the host nations representative.

Playoff Round

C07S05-180

Ba were unable to resist the might of Al-Gharrafa going down 3-0

Quarter Final

C07S05-181

Guangzhou Evergrande put paid to Al-Gharrafa while Tigres defeated Al-Ahly.  The draw the pits us against Tigres which denies me a chance to lock horns with “Mr Li”.

“Mr Li” almost got to face off against his old team mates as Guangzhou went down on penalties to America.

C07S05-199

Al-Gharrafa won but it took penalties to decide the match.

FIFA Club World Cup – Second Semi Final

C07S05-182

Tigres de la UANL are the North American Champions. They should offer a challenge for us, but one we should overcome relatively easily. I have twice been out at this stage of the competition so a win here is a must.

C07S05-186

The best side we could field. “A slight gamble with “Hero” in at inside forward in place of “Oos” or “Diogo”. Interesting that they have two players on the plane still!

C07S05-187

We were 3-0 up after 6 minutes and 5-0 up after 30. We went into contain mode and rode our goals into the final.

FIFA Club World Cup – Third Placed Playoff

C07S05-198

Tigres reclaimed some pride with a comprehensive win over Guangzhou.

FIFA Club World Cup – Final

C07S05-190

Here we go then. A big final in a competition that I would like to add to my resume. That would mean the only competition I have yet to win at Liverpool is the Europa League.

C07S05-191

Two changes see “Oos” in for “Hero” while “Trickles” is on the bench in place of “Nico”. It is “Trickles” last season with the club and as he was with me as a Jets player I want to give him this title.

C07S05-192

The final score flattered us as they were good for at least one goal. we banged in 3 goals in the last half hour which blew the score out somewhat.
