One year ago today FC Barcelona claimed the Club World Cup title in Yokohama, Japan. The 0-4 victory in the semi-final against Al-Sadd and the 0-4 in the final against Neymar’s Santos saw Josep Guardiola’s team win the second Club World Cup title in FC Barcelona history.

Goals from Messi (2), Xavi and Cesc took Barça to footballing heaven, even though days prior David Villa sustained a serious injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season.
