Liverpool win the Fifa Club World Cup final after extra-time

Liverpool were crowned 2019 FIFA Club World Cup champions with a 1-0 victory over Flamengo after extra-time in Doha on Saturday.

Roberto Firmino scored the only goal of the final in the 99th minute at Khalifa International Stadium to secure the club its first triumph in the competition.

The Brazilian, who was denied by the post early in the second half, concluded a well-worked move by converting from Sadio Mane's pass from the right-hand side of the box.

J├╝rgen Klopp's team overcame a setback to add another trophy to the cabinet as they were awarded an injury-time penalty, but saw the decision overturned by VAR.

The first chance of the extra period produced the winning goal.

A quick transition from defence to attack saw Mane advancing towards goal after Henderson's fine through ball.

The No.10 held up the ball in the box and unselfishly squared for his forward partner. Firmino showed fantastic composure to wait for a clear sighting of the goal before firing into the back of the net.
