Liverpool FC has won the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time. FIFA praised Brazilian national Firmino as a "hero", after he brought the first prestigious trophy for Liverpool in the competition, which features each continent's champions, making it the second English team to gain the cup, after Manchester United in 2008.

The 2019 Club World Cup took place at the Khalifa International Stadium in the Qatari capital of Doha on Saturday, with two rival teams - England's Liverpool FC and Brazil's Clube de Regatas do Flamengo striving for dominance in the annual competition.

Liverpool became this year's winner after Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino scored an extra-time goal to beat Flamengo 1-0.

 

​Netizens instantly took to social media, and most commentators pointed to the unusual win-win situation for both Brazilian and British football fans, praising Firmino's performance who has, in a peculiar and coincidental way, made everyone happy and satisfied with the result of the game.

 

​The Club World Cup is reportedly perceived as far more important in South America than it is in Europe. Saturday's game at the Khalifa International Stadium is a historic repeat of the 1981 standoff in Intercontinental Cup when Flamengo powered past Liverpool 3-0 in Tokyo.
