Ronaldo takes goalscoring record from Messi

Tens of thousands of fans descended on Zayed Sports City stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday evening for what was billed as the biggest match in UAE club football history.

A stunning performance saw the Pride of Abu Dhabi lead the UEFA Champions League champions 1-0 at half-time, in a display that will have won them fans the world over.

Zinedine Zidane maintains Karim Benzema had a "very good" Club World Cup semi-final, despite his misses, and "won't ask" Real Madrid for another striker.

They won La Liga, the Champions League, UEFA and Spanish Super Cup in a thrilling fashion after hitting top form in a four-month spell between April and August, but since then the European champions have faded, understandably tired by a heavy schedule.

Eight minutes into the second half, Los Blancos were level through Ronaldo, who latched onto a fine pass from Modric before slotting into the bottom corner, 1-1.

"This was a dream come true for me".


"It is not going to be easy for us".

Cristiano Ronaldo said it would be great if Real Madrid C.F.'s "BBC" reunited, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor eyeing a reunion with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

"It is a very important tournament for us", the Portuguese forward said.

The Portugal superstar was then in the thick of the action again, just failing to get a touch on a shot from Gareth Bale that crept home to put Madrid in front. These will be role models for our population.

With the strike, Ronaldo became the all-time best scorer in the Club World Cup with six goals. The victor, scored by super sub Gareth Bale, sealed the end of the dream for Al Jazira.

With the win Real Madrid go through to Saturday's final in which they will play Brazilian side Gremio.
