Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates | AFP | With a penalty goal converted by the German Kai Havertz in extra time (117), Chelsea won the Club World Cup for the first time in its history after beating Palmeiras 2-1 this Saturday in Abu Dhabi.

In the regulation 90 minutes, the Belgian Romelu Lukaku put the English ahead at the beginning of the second half (54), but Raphael Veiga equalized from the penalty spot 10 minutes later for the Copa Libertadores champion, who could not add his first title in the Club World Cup.

The Brazilians’ dream vanished just a few minutes from the end, when the Australian referee Chris Beath consulted the VAR for a possible handball inside the area by Luan Garcia that ended up signaling the penalty converted by Havertz.

In a fateful ending for the Brazilian central defender, Garcia was expelled in stoppage time for a takedown of Havertz when the German striker faced goalkeeper Weberton alone (120+6).

With this victory, Chelsea maintains dominance in Europe in this tournament, which they lost for the last time in 2012, when the English team fell to another Brazilian rival, Corinthians.

Current double champion of the Copa Libertadores, Abel Ferreira’s Palmeiras is left without the dream of inscribing his name in the Club World Cup list of winners, along with Corinthians, Sao Paulo and Inter de Porto Alegre.
