Liverpool aiming to be World Champions!


Liverpool are hoping to end an amazing year by lifting the FIFA Club World Cup.

On the Saturday before Christmas, they can follow up their dramatic semi-final victory on Wednesday evening against Mexican side, Monterrey, by beating Brazilian side Flamengo in Doha, Qatar.

Liverpool will already end 2019 top of the English Premier League (currently 10 points ahead of Leicester City who they play away on Boxing Day) along with being UEFA Champions League holders (having beaten Spurs 2-0 in Madrid in June) and still with a chance to defend that title after winning their Champions League qualifying group last week.

Liverpool will face Flamengo in the Final after the Brazilians defeated Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal 3-1 in the other semi final on Tuesday. Flamengo will be cheered on in the Final by an estimated 10,000 fans from Rio de Janeiro. Flamengo secured their place at the tournament following their last minute winner against last year’s South American representatives River Plate in the Copa Libertadores Final in Lima at the end of November.
