UAE Press Al Ain's success shows the potential of Emirati football

They've now won that four times each, the same number as the Champions League and the Club World Cup. For his part, Al Ain's player Amer Abdulrahman reiterated his playmates' unswerving will to introduce a handsome football tomorrow and raise the UAE flag high at the end of the match. Midfielder Marcos Llorente also scored from outside the area for Madrid's second goal to help the European champions claim a record-extending seventh world title.

Santiago Solari won his first trophy since replacing Julen Lopetegui at the Real Madrid hot seat, naming an unchanged eleven from the victory against Kashim Antlers earlier this week.

Al Ain then went on to beat African champions Esperance de Tunis 3-0 and South American champions River Plate 5-4 on penalties in the semifinals to set up the glamour showdown with Real Madrid. "It's been an unforgettable year for me", said Modric, who led Croatia to the World Cup final in July. Emilio Butragueno (Real Madrid's director of institutional relations) called Enzo Francescoli (River's sports director) and told him that they would like to talk to us about the player.

"A dream year, really".

Llorente netted his first goal for Madrid to put the result beyond doubt with half an hour left.

Alvarez becomes the fourth Mexican fighter to win three world titles, in three different weight classes. Alvarez himself refused to rule out a third meeting with Golovkin. "Canelo wants to make history".

"It is an unforgettable year for me, a flawless year, winning the Champions League, then Croatia had a spectacular World Cup and then all these prizes arrived, now another trophy with Madrid".

Solari, though, was quick to pile praise on Zidane, who surprisingly stood down in the wake of winning Madrid's third consecutive Champions League crown at the end of the 2017-18 season.

Marco Asensio is honoured to be on Inter's radar but has no plans to leave Real Madrid, according to his agent.

"The first thing is to congratulate Real Madrid because they deservedly won it, with good football", he said.
