Real Madrid's Zinedine Zidane seemed unimpressed with the use of video technology in their Club World Cup win over Al-Jazira.

Real Madrid will seek to retain their Club World Cup title against Brazilian side Gremio on Saturday in the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi after both sides were made to work harder than expected to reach the showpiece game.
