ROMELU LUKAKU grabbed his second goal in the FIFA Club World Cup final to put Chelsea ahead of Palmeiras in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
But if the Blues are to see off Brazilian side Palmeiras and win this competition for the first time, they will have to do a hell of a lot better than this laboured semi-final win here in Abu Dhabi.
The Blues were pretty poor in the first 45 minutes, but they came out with fresh impetus in this second period.
Callum Hudson-Odoi worked his way down the left hand side and stood up a lovely ball for Romelu Lukaku to attack. He beat two central defenders to it and nodded the ball beyond the goalkeeper.
That should give everyone a lift. Now let’s push on for a couple more! This is a dangerous Palmeiras team and they could strike back at any moment.
