  • The Club World Cup title goes to South America for the first time since 2006 and nobody could argue that the Brazilian side did not deserve it on the day. Chelsea had the opportunities but they failed to take them and it's delight for Corinthians who win the final in Japan. Thanks for your company and I'll see you all again soon.

  • FULL TIME. Corinthians 1 Chelsea 0.

  • Azpilicueta takes a tumble under Fabio Santos and Corinthians look to venture forward once more. Chelsea get the numbers back though and force the attack to end via a Ramires tackle.

  • Chelsea have the ball in the net, but Torres' beautiful header is ruled out for offside, with replays showing the linesman made the correct decision.

  • Regarding the red card incident, Emerson went down holding his face, with Cahill indicating he seemed to catch him accidentally to Benitez on the sidelines.

  • Emerson makes way for Corinthians with Wallace coming on in his place.

  • Red card for Cahill!

  • Oscar controls a Mata ball poorly and in despite being in a wonderful position he allows Ralf in who makes a timely clearance.

  • Azpilicueta delivers a teasing ball in at the near post, but that man Cassio smothers it once again with Torres left frustrated again in his battle with the goalkeeper.

  • Hazard is taken off and Marin comes on in his place.

  • Great chance for Chelsea! Azpilicueta's huge throw-in eventually falls to Torres, who has the goal gaping, and he fires straight at Cassio. Biggest moment of the game so far for the Blues.

  • Torres gets to Mata's pass, but top drawer defending from Ralf brings the attack to an end as Corinthians line up another change.

  • Lampard's ball out to Azpilicueta is met by the head of Andrea and the organised Corithians advance forward again until a loose touch from Emerson gifts possession back to Ramires.

  • Ivanovic is hauled off with Azpilicueta the man replacing him.

  • Torres ends up near the touchline in his attempts to get on the ball, but Chelsea really look in danger of seeing this game fizzles out unless they apply some severe pressure in the final third.

  • Oscar can't find a way through to Torres as the striker continues to be exceptionally marked and Cassio is again the first to react.

  • Ivanovic looks to take Chelsea forward until Fabio Santos cuts off his path, with Corinthians breaking as a result until Emerson is caught offside from Guerrero's pass.

  • Guerrero's persistence forces Luiz into a nervy clearance, the striker continuing to impress in his one-man mission against the Chelsea back four.

  • Oscar curls the ball into Torres' path, but he is well marshalled by Andre and the centre-back calmly plays back to Cassio.

  • Chelsea produce their first chance in quite a while, with Hazard drifting a cross into the centre of the box before Torres tamely pokes a header wide.
