Al Duhail power past Ulsan Hyundai to finish fifth in FIFA Club World Cup
Doha: Al Duhail SC have finished fifth at the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020 after an impressive 3-1 win over 2020 AFC Champions League winners Ulsan Hyundai FC.
The Qataris produced a trio of outstanding goals, the first of which came after 21 minutes when Edmilson Junior advanced unchallenged from midfield and guided an inch-perfect low shot into the bottom-right corner.
It was the in-form Belgian’s 13th strike in his last 10 appearances, and was no more than the local favourites deserved for an impressive first-half display that should, in truth, have yielded another goal or two.
