Corinthians beats Chelsea 1-0

Post-match reaction after Corinthians beat Chelsea 1-0 in the final of the Club World Cup at Yokohama International Stadium in Japan on Sunday.

YOKOHAMA, Japan -- Brazil's Corinthians ended Europe's five-year winning streak at the Club World Cup, beating Chelsea 1-0 Sunday night behind Paolo Guerrero's goal off a scramble in the 69th minute.

Paulinho broke into the box and laid the ball off to Danilo, whose shot deflected off the legs of defender Gary Cahill. The ball bounded to Guerrero, and the Peruvian headed the ball past goalkeeper Petr Cech and defenders David Luiz and Ashley Cole, who all were on the goal line.

Fernando Torres headed the ball into the goal in the second minute of stoppage time but was ruled offside.

"You could see today from the first minute it was going to be tough, they were very physical and organized," Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez said. "We had many chances but their 'keeper was man of the match."

Corinthians, which won the inaugural tournament in 2000, joined Barcelona as the only teams to win the title twice.

Goalkeeper Cassio made several important saves, diving to stop Cahill's shot in the 11th minute and Victor Moses' angled effort in the 39th.

"This victory is the result of teamwork. Each player played his own role," Corinthians coach Tite said. "There were a lot of elements to this victory. We created many chances and it was a high quality match for us. We used our marking system in the second half. We did get tired but we stayed calm"

Chelsea finished a man short after Cahill was give a red card for a rough challenge on Emerson in the 90th.

Frank Lampard, back from a right calf injury, captained Chelsea in his third appearances and first start since Oct 23.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game," Lampard said. "They were very organized on counterattack. It was disappointing to come all the way out here and not win it."

Benitez was in his third world final, following a loss with Liverpool in 2005 and a win with Inter Milan two years ago.

The tournament was the first to feature goal-line technology. Magnetic-field-based system GoalRef was used at Yokohama Stadium, while Toyota Stadium was equipped with the camera-based Hawk-Eye system. There were no close calls, however.

Mexico's Monterrey defeated Egypt's Al-Ahly for third place on goals by Jesus Corona in the third minute and Cesar Delgado in the 66th.
