Mauricio brace give Urawa fifth place in Club World Cup

The fifth place match of the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup took place on Tuesday in UAE, with Urawa Reds winning 3-2 over Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca.

With a markedly different line-up from their opening loss to host representatives Al Jazira, Urawa took the lead in the 18th minute through Mauricio’s long-range effort. 

After conceding an equaliser on a set play just three minutes later, midfielder Yosuke Kashiwagi topped off a series of clever passes with his own strike to make it 2-1.

Mauricio found his second of the day in the 60th minute when he found himself free on a well-designed set play, giving Urawa a 3-1 lead. 

Video review handed Wydad a penalty kick in additional time, but Reda El Hajouj’s converted effort was not enough to deny the Asian champions a win to end their season.
