Pachuca 2-2 Al Wahda: Mexicans win on pens

Pachuca came from two goals down to beat 10-man Al-Wahda on penalties and

finish fifth at the Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi.

After a largely disappointing campaign in the United Arab Emirates, the Central

American champions at least finished on a high before going back to Mexico.

However, they made hard work of it before emerging 4-2 winners from a penalty

shoot-out after Dario Cvitanich rescued them.

Both sides had early chances before Bruno found Ismaeil Matar with a cross

which the striker volleyed home.

Pachuca won a penalty when Mahmoud Al Kamali brought down Franco Arizala in the

73rd minute. Al Kamali was shown a second yellow card and left the field but

Edgar Benitez smashed the spot-kick high over the bar.

Al-Wahda were buoyed by the miss and soon doubled their lead four minutes later

when Mahmoud Al Hammadi scored on the rebound when Miguel Calero had saved his

initial effort.

Cvitanich came off the bench in the 77th minute and with eight minutes left he

volleyed home to reduce the gap. He went one better a minute from time,

equalising with a clever backheel near the line to disappoint the hosts.

The match therefore went to penalties and when Calero saved from Abdulrahim

Jumaa and Modibi Diarra's kick went over the bar, Pachuca had secured the win.
