Player Ratings: Selfless Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos lead Real Madrid

Welsh winger Gareth Bale helped Real Madrid claim their fourth trophy of 2014 after easing to a 2-0 win against South American champions San Lorenzo in the Club World Cup final.

It wasn't quite the spectacle the crowd at Le Grande Stade in Marrakech might have hoped for -- and hardly helped by an over-officious referee -- but after a bruising 90 minutes, Real Madrid added a Club World Cup title to its three Intercontinental Cups by overcoming the champions of the 2014 Copa Libertadores, San Lorenzo, 2-0.

Three Points: Real Madrid easily clinch Club World Cup glory

Sergio Ramos set Real Madrid on the road to victory once again.

A trio of observations on Real Madrid's 2-0 win vs. San Lorenzo in the FIFA Club World Cup final on Saturday.

1. Ramos is the man for the big occasion again

The game had seen more yellow cards than shots on goal when Sergio Ramos rose majestically to head in Toni Kroos' well-flighted corner and open the scoring. Ramos combined a number of different gestures in his celebration, ending by planting his feet to the turf by the corner flag, while pointing with both hands at the name on the back of his...

Iker Casillas' journey from depths of despair to Real Madrid's 700 club

The ESPN FC crew discusses Iker Casillas' future with Spain after David de Gea replaced him in goal in the game against Luxembourg.

Half a year can seem like a lifetime in the world of football -- just ask Iker Casillas. Just six months ago, the Real Madrid legend must have been wondering if his hugely decorated spell at Real Madrid was coming to a not-so-decorated conclusion, but now the 33-year-old will hope to celebrate his 700th official appearance for the club he loves by lifting the FIFA Club World Cup on Saturday night.

Real were minutes away from not even being in Morocco at all. Carlo Ancelotti's side were staring...

With Cristiano Ronaldo looming, struggling Mario Yepes faces final test

San Lorenzo's Emmanuel Mas says the team take great pride in reaching the Club World Cup Final, in which they will play Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Is Saturday's Club World Cup final against Real Madrid one step too far in the phenomenal career of San Lorenzo's Mario Yepes? As the legendary 38-year-old Colombian prepares to face Cristiano Ronaldo and company, many San Lorenzo fans think that might be so.

Ever since signing for the club in September following his supreme performances at the World Cup, he has failed to convince and the semifinal clash against Auckland City on Wednesday was his worst game for the club so far.

Critics are merciless....

1. Real Madrid (no change)

Did you know that Madrid are one game away from a world championship? The Club World Cup is a curious affair whose worth is debated on an annual basis, but Carlo Ancelotti's side will win it with victory vs. San Lorenzo on Sunday. Regardless of its value, another trophy would cap a fine year for Los Blancos.

Uber-confident Real have designs on greatness

A warm morning greeted Real Madrid in Marrakech, for their first training session since qualifying for the FIFA Club World Cup final.

Cristiano Ronaldo's attempt to score against Cruz Azul at the Club World Cup with a rabona caused a bit of a stir in Mexico. Fox Sports commentator Raul Orvananos described the Real Madrid forward as a "clown" and although he issued an apology later (to Real fans, if not the player) he refused to alter his appraisal and went on to say that Ronaldo's trickery was tantamount to making fun of the Mexican side, who were 3-0 down at the time.

It's an opinion that Orvananos is not alone in holding:...
