[CLUB WORLD CUP] Leandro Benitez scored both goals to give Argentina's Estudiantes a 2-1 win over South Korea's Pohang Steelers Tuesday in the semifinals of the Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi. The Steelers finished with eight players when they had three, including goalkeeper Shin Hwa Yong, sent off in the second half.

Estudiantes will face the winner of Wednesday's Barcelona-Atlante game on Saturday in the final.

No Argentine club has won the FIFA club competition. Argentine teams won the old Intercontinental Club Cup (Toyota Cup) a record nine times. Estudiantes was the winner in 1968 in an ill-tempered series against Manchester United with George Best.
