FIFA Club Wold Cup Final 2015

The city of Yokohama has been in the route of many foreigners since the development of its port activities in the 19th century. Today, however, it attracts the interest of the international community for a different reason: football. The second largest city in Japan will be the stage of the 12th edition of the FIFA Club World Cup Final. Europe and South America will be duelling in the International Stadium Yokohama for the title of best football club in the world.

On one side we have River Plate, the underdogs. The Argentinian team is positioning itself on the top of South American football again. Following the disastrous campaign of 2011 that resulted in relegation to the second division of Argentine League, River has showed that the glorious days are back. The conquer of America came in 2015, when the team won its third Copa Libertadores. Without many known faces or international stars, the coach Marcelo Gallardo relies on the talent of Carlos Sanchez and Rodrigo Mora to pursue the title.

On the other side we have Barcelona, the absolute favourite. After an outstanding campaign in the UEFA Champions League earlier this year, the Spanish team is now after the World Champions badge, which currently belongs to its main rival Real Madrid. The MSN trio (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) is Barcelona’s main weapon and the coach Luis Enrique already confirmed that they will be in the front line for this battle.

We from 8bit Football will for sure keep our eyes on Japan to follow every detail of this match. We all hope to see another vibrant day in the international football world and may the best team win!
