Real Madrid cannot just turn up at the FIFA Club World Cup and expect to bring the trophy back to Spain, according to head coach Zinedine Zidane.

Wednesday's semi-final will see Los Blancos take on Al Jazira at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi, where Gareth Bale is expected to return from a calf injury.

Al-Jazira set up a FIFA Club World Cup semifinal against European champions Real Madrid as they beat Urawa Red Diamonds 1-0 in Abu Dhabi.
Ali Mabkhout broke the deadlock on 52 minutes for the United Arab Emirates side, who had beaten Auckland City in their playoff on Wednesday.
Japanese side Urawa, the Asia Champions, could not find a way back as Al-Jazira closed out victory and will meet the Spaniards, who trashed La Liga rivals Sevilla 5-0 on Saturday afternoon, in Abu Dhabi on Dec.13.
Auckland City were knocked out of the Club World Cup at the first hurdle as Romarinho's first half goal was enough for United Arab Emirates' Al-Jazira to advance.
The New Zealanders had the most of possession but Al-Jazira had the better chances and called goalkeeper Zubikarai into action on more than one occasion.

Al-Jazira go on to face...
