Raja Casablanca continued their dream run in the FIFA Club World Cup as the home favourites stunned Brazil side Atletico Mineiro in Marrakech to book a final meeting with Bayern Munich.

The hosts denied Ronaldinho a chance to win the competition for the first time, having reached the final with Barcelona in 2006.

The former FIFA World Player of the Year brought his side level with a brilliant free-kick, cancelling out Mouhcine Iajour's opener early in the second half.

But Iajour won a penalty which Mouhcine Moutouali converted in the 84th minute and Vivien Madibe sealed a famous win in stoppage time.

The Moroccan side will now take on European giants Bayern in Saturday's final in the capital.

Earlier, Monterrey thrashed Al Ahly 5-1 to take fifth place in a match which saw Cesar Delgado become the competition's all-time leading goalscorer.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
