Zidane: Real Madrid Dreaming Of A Sextuple

Gareth Bale came off the bench to score Real Madrid's winning goal with his first touch in their Fifa Club World Cup semi-final against Al Jazira.

Ronaldo's 53rd-minute strike gave Real their third world title in the last four seasons and ended the South American champions' hopes of pulling off what would have been a huge upset.

Having initially appeared to rule out the goal and then given it, Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci then chalked it off for good having decided Benzema, who was in an offside position, was interfering despite not touching the ball.

"Bale is all about scoring goals", Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez said.

Real Madrid can round off the most successful year in the club's already glorious history by claiming a fifth trophy in 2017 at the Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi this week.

The UAE Pro-League champions took the lead thanks to Romarinho before Cristiano Ronaldo and substitute Gareth Bale struck to spare Zinedine Zidane's blushes against a side whose own coach, Henk ten Cate, had all but ruled out a shock victory before the game.

Ronaldo says he will be available to play when Real take on arch-rivals Barcelona in El Clasico next Saturday though.

"The whole world's going to be watching the game and it's going to be a huge privilege for all of us".

The strike was also Ronaldo's 31st goal in global competitions in 2017, with 20 of those coming for Real and another 11 with Portugal. "In another situation, it didn't help us". They cancelled a goal for us, and I saw the images back, and it was inches.
