Manchester City played their first FIFA Club World Cup fixture on Tuesday evening against Urawa Red Diamonds and claimed a 3-0 win over the side to advance to the final.
Goals from Mateo Kovacic and Bernardo Silva, with an own goal by Marius Hoibraten, gave City a rather comfortable victory during their first club World Cup game. And with a successful semi-final completed, the Cityzens will now meet Fluminense in what will be an exciting conclusion to the competition.
With the game against Fluminense coming in a few days' time, Rodri reflected on the 90 minutes the team played on Tuesday evening to book their spot in the final.
"We did a very good game. It wasn't easy. We came here to win it; this is the mentality of the team. It is never easy. I think that's why we needed our best version today, and we will need it for the final.
The Cityzens will go into the final as the favorites to lift the trophy for the first time in their history, but the team will have to give their everything to surpass the opposition.
Manchester City will play Fluminense on Friday the 22nd, at 18:00 (UK)
