FIFA wants 24-team Club World Cup 'pilot,' backs away from vote on Nations League

Real Madrid have won FIFA's Club World Cup for each of the past three seasons

FIFA Council members will be asked on Friday to approve a pilot tournament for an expanded 24-team Club World Cup in July 2021 featuring eight European participants, but plans for a worldwide Nations League are on hold

An overhaul of the current seven-team annual Club World Cup, normally in December, is being pursued by FIFA President Gianni Infantino to generate new interest and greater revenue despite ongoing opposition from Europe, with the long-term vision of the bigger tournament being staged...

Real Madrid's Santiago Solari lauds 'difficult to repeat' FIFA Club World Cup achievement

Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari said his side's three consecutive Club World Cup titles will be difficult to repeat after Saturday's 4-1 final victory over hosts Al Ain in Abu Dhabi.

Al Ain had two early chances but once Luka Modric curled Madrid ahead they strolled on to victory thanks to Marcos Llorente, Sergio Ramos and a Yahia Nader own-goal, with Al Ain's Tsukasa Shiotani getting a late consolation for the hosts

"We are all very happy," Solari said at the post-game news conference. "The praise...

River Plate's third-place win doesn't hide that South American football continues to lose ground

River Plate can fly back to Argentina with smiles on their faces. Saturday's 4-0 win over Asian champions Kashima Antlers of Japan is a morale boost, making it easier to recall the historic 5-3 aggregate win over local rivals Boca Juniors in the final of the Copa Libertadores -- and easier to forget the defeat on penalties to Al-Ain of the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday.

There is only one problem with the victory over Kashima. It was in the match to contest third place -- in a competition where...

Llorente 8/10 as Real Madrid cruise past Al-Ain, win Club World Cup

Llorente, right, was exceptional in midfield as Real completed a comfortable victory over Al-Ain.

Real Madrid won a third consecutive Club World Cup trophy thanks to a 4-1 victory over hosts Al-Ain in Saturday's final in Abu Dhabi, with Los Blancos' goals coming from Luka Modric, Marcos Llorente, Sergio Ramos and a Yahia Nader own goal, while Tsukasa Shiotani got Al-Ain's late consolation.

Positives

A fourth CWC in this current format means Madrid have won this tournament in its current format more than any other club -- most important, they've won it more than La Liga rivals Barcelona....
