While Roberto Firmino scored the match-winning goal and Mohamed Salah scooped the Golden Ball for the tournament, it was English duo Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson who stole the show.
With a squad filled with young talent and experience at the highest level in Europe, Flamengo were never going to be easy opponents for Liverpool. It took extra time for the Reds to break the Brazilians’ resolve, but eventually the Premier League leaders were crowned Club World Cup champions for the first time.
Liverpool go into the Club World Cup final in Qatar hoping to win the competition for the first time. Brazilian side Flamengo are the opponents, with a squad full of young talent and big-name experience.
