- Story Text: Emotions were high in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday (December 21) with fans of local club Flamengo on edge during a nail-biting final between the Brazilian team and Liverpool that saw the English side come out on top at the Club World Cup Final.
After watching their team lose 0-1 in overtime, some Flamengo fans wept with sadness whilst others felt pride that their local club had gone so far in the tournament.
Ironically, it was Liverpool's rising star from Brazil, Roberto Firmino, who had broken the hopes of these fans back home. Firmino's goal in the 100th minute of the game cemented a strong year for Liverpool.
But for the giant European club, Flamengo was no push over. Fans in Rio de Janeiro were proud of their team's efforts in the final, with the club seeing a local resurgence under its current coach Jorge Jesus.
