Bale slams VAR after Club World Cup win

Real Madrid news in brief Club World Cup James Guedes

And Ronaldo was in the mood to justify his own hype with a decisive goal in Wednesday's Club World Cup semi-final against Al Jazira, hauling his side level after they had surprisingly fallen behind.

The woodwork came to Al Jazira's rescue once again in the 69th minute as Benzema's deflected effort from distance crashed against the upright.

The match had two goals disallowed by video review, one for each team.

Madrid, twice winners of the mid-season money-spinner in years past, will face South American champions Gremio, from Porto Alegre in Brazil, in the final on Saturday.

Real were struggling to break down the Al Jazira which prompted Zidane to introduce Bale for Benzema in the 81st minute.

Ali Mabkhout charged from his own half with six Madrid players chasing him.

He is the first senior to win the award since Troy Smith of Ohio State in 2006. He has also rushed for 310 yards and another five scores with no fumbles lost.

Boussoufa was in front of the pass, so Al-Jazira's goal was ruled out.

With Khasif out of the way, Cristiano Ronaldo equalized courtesy of a tasty assist from Luka Modric.

Earlier, Al Jazira produced a scintillating performance to give Spanish giants Real Madrid a scare in the second semi-final.
