Barcelona Conquer the World Club Cup and Messi Wins Player of the Tournament

Barcelona now rule the world thanks to a nail-biting win over Veron's Estudiantes, the tense final of the FIFA World Club Cup started off with a goal for the Argentinean side by Boselli in the 37th minute. But Guardiola made a key substitution in the 46th minute, subbing Pedro in for Seydou Keita, and in the 89th minute Pedrito scores letting Barcelona go to extra time. With the sides evenly matched, the deadlock of extra time was broken ten minutes before the end by Messi, unmarked in the box, he somehow gets the ball in the back of the net.

Messi won the Adidas Golden Ball of the tournament with Veron coming second to win the Silver Ball, with Xavi following as third, winning the Bronze ball of the FIFA World Club Cup.

Now that Barcelona have conquered yet another trophy, it seems that nothing can stop them from reconquering everything again,
