Plagued by injuries and struggling in Serie A, Inter Milan is looking for some relief by winning the Club World Cup

Benitez eyes successful Club World Cup campaign

Embattled manager Rafa Benitez acknowledges that the Dec. 8-18 tournament in Abu Dhabi is “very important for all of us.”

Benitez is hoping goalkeeper Julio Cesar and defenders Maicon and Cristian Chivu return from injury during the tournament, noting that “it will be easier when the players become available again.”

As the European champion, Inter has a bye through to the semifinals, where it will face either Asian Champions League winner Seongnam Ilhwa of South Korea, Al Wahda of the United Arab Emirates or Hekari United of Papua New Guinea.

Internacional of Brazil is the favorite to meet Inter in the final.
