Santos brushed off the challenge of Kashiwa Reysol to reach the FIFA Club World Cup final. They beat their Japanese opponents 3-1 with goals from Neymar (who else?), Borges and Danilo. Neymar’s goal to open the scoring was fantastic. Have a look at the video clip below. Borges’ and Danilo’s goals were not too bad either. However, Kashiwa carved open the Santos defence on several occasions – the post and poor finishing saved Santos. Henrique was also lucky not to be sent off after taking down the last man. You get the feeling that their probable final opponents Barcelona won’t be so charitable. The final will be on Sunday at 19.30 local time – 10.30am UK and 08.30am Brazil.
