Gignac and Tigres make CONCACAF history by taking down Palmeiras at Club World Cup

 

The Meixcan side’s run is a historic one for Liga MX and the entire North American region
Tigres defeated favourited Palmeiras 1-0 in the Club World Cup semi-finals on Sunday thanks to a second-half penalty from star striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

Manager Tuca Ferretti had said his Liga MX team didn’t fear the Brazilians, and his players seemed to take that message to heart on the pitch.

By reaching the Club World Cup final, Tigres made CONCACAF history and ensured the 2021 season would become one of the most significant years they’ve ever had regardless of where they place domestically.
