MOST COMMENTED

[CLUB WORLD CUP] Tout Puissant Mazembe became the first team from outside Europe and South America to reach the final of the Club World Cup when it beat Internacional of Brazil, 2-0, in Tuesday's semifinals in Abu Dhabi.

Superb second-half strikes by Mulota Kabangu and Dioko Kaluyituka gave the team from the Democratic Republic of Congo its second win of the tournament, a year after it came to Abu Dhani and lost both games.

Goalkeeper Muteba Kidiaba's brilliance in goal to deny the Brazilian club was only matched by the brilliance of his celebrations after the two goals as he bounced along the ground on his rear end (see video below).

Mazembe will play either Inter Milan or Asian Champions League champion Seongnam Ilhwa of South Korea in Sunday's final.
