UAE team Al-Wahda got a confortable 2-0 lead in their match with Mexican giants Pachuca through Ismail Matter and Mahmoud Al-Hammadi and seemed only a minutes away from a consolation prize in the Club Word Cup.

However, the team suffered a major blow when defender Hamdan Al-Kamal was shown the red card in the 72nd minute, allowing the Mexicans to fight back and level the score.

Substitute striker Dario Cvitanich struck the net twice to give his teammates the chance to win during penalties.  

Al-Wahda had a disappointing campaign as they conceded a heavy 4-1 defeat against South Korean Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma before losing to Pachuca. They had a single victory against Hekari United of Papua New Guinea 3-0 in the quarter final play-off.
