Pachuca falls at Club World Cup

CONCACAF champion Pachuca lasted all of game at the Club World Cup, falling to Tunisia's Etoile du Sahel, the African club champion, 1-0, on Sunday.

Ghanaian midfielder Moussa Narry's deflected shot in the 85th minute gave Sahel the victory and a berth in Wednesday's semifinals against Boca Juniors.

"I'm happy we survived," Etoile's French coach, Bertrand Marchand, said. "Pachuca is a better team than us and has more experience. We're looking forward to Boca -- and then AC Milan."

Pachuca, Mexico's oldest club, finishes the 2007 season with three titles -- CONCACAF Champions Cup, Mexican Clausura and SuperLiga.
