After Fluminense defeated Al Ahly 2-0 on Monday, the seasoned team advanced to the Club World Cup final thanks to a penalty kick won by defender Marcelo’s cunning strategy.

Jhon Arias was put in position to convert a penalty in the 71st minute when Marcelo‘s deft footwork at the edge of the Al Ahly penalty area enticed forward Percy Tau into the tackle.
John Kennedy, a replacement, gave Fluminense the victory in the ninetieth minute with a curling left-footed goal.

In an attempt to give South America just its second Club World Cup victory in 17 years, the Brazilian team will take on either Manchester City or Urawa Red Diamonds in the championship game on Friday.

The majority of the approximately 35,000 spectators were boisterous red-clad supporters of Al Ahly, who will take on the losers of the other semifinal in their third-place match on Friday. The game takes place at the same King Abdullah Sports City stadium on Tuesday.

Marcelo assisted Fluminense in creating at one end, while Felipe Melo, a 40-year-old defender, and Fabio, a 43-year-old goalkeeper, provided protection at the other.

One of the most memorable moments of the first half came from Felipe Melo, who raced back toward goal to tackle Tau, who had been free in space and about to shoot. Felipe Melo gave a satisfied shout as he stood up.

Fabio was able to consistently stop Al Ahly’s 18 goal attempts thanks to his composed demeanor and keen positioning sense.
