Milan Books Final Showdown with Boca

MOST COMMENTED

Clarence Seedorf and Kaka were on form as AC Milan beat Japan's Urawa Reds to reach the final of FIFA's Club World Cup. The Durtchman scored the game's only goal, driving home a fantastic cross from Kaka in the 68th minute. "We showed great patience and waited for our moment to strike," Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti told reporters after the match. "I think the team demonstrated its quality tonight." Kaka and Seedorf terrorized the Urawa defense all game long; the Ballon D'Or winner providing the Dutchman with two or three good opportunities that he wasted before finally finishing in the 68th minute. Seedorf's goal silenced the Yokohama crowd, as the visitors then coasted to victory.

The win sets up a final showdown between the European champion and Boca Juniors, the South American champion. In 2003, Milan played Boca in the Club World Cup final and lost on penalties. "We know Boca will be a different class from Urawa and we will need to play even better but we came to Japan with one aim -- to take the trophy home to Italy," said Ancelotti. "That's still our goal."
