By: Manu Tournoux

By winning against Fluminense (4-0), Manchester City won the Club World Cup for the first time in its history.

These days, it’s a welcome trophy in Manchester City’s showcase. At the heart of a fairly chaotic first part of the season, Pep Guardiola’s team had the opportunity to forget their little worries for one evening, to propel themselves to the top of world football.

Man City rolled out

The end of the last campaign, marked by the fantastic Premier League-FA Cup-Champions League treble, allowed City to compete in the Club World Cup final for the first time in its history. After having punched their ticket by beating the Japanese of Urawa Red Diamons, the winners of the C1 came up against the holders of the Copa Libertadores, Fluminense, who defeated Al-Ahly in the semi-final. And Guardiola’s gang held their place. More effective, the European champion managed his highlights well to win this honorary trophy.

Manchester City broke the deadlock from the start. It was Julian Alvarez who lit the light for the English champions with an opportunistic goal (1-0, 1st), before the break came at half-time. -hour of play on an own goal from Nino (2-0, 27th). At the end of the match, City sealed its success by salting the addition with Foden (3-0, 74th), then Alvarez, who added his double (4-0, 88th). Manchester City becomes the 4th English club to win the Club World Cup after Manchester United (2008), Liverpool (2019) and Chelsea (2021). For his part, Pep Guardiola is alone on his planet since he is the record holder in this competition, with a 4th coronation. Mission accomplished.
