South Americans into world club cup final

6:07 am on 18 December 2008

Ecuador's Liga de Quito have qualified for the final of Fifa's Club World Cup after a 2-nil win over Mexico's Pachuca in Japan.

In persistent rain, Claudio Bieler and Luis Bolanos did the damage with first-half goals for the South American champions.

Liga can now look forward to a final against either Manchester United or Japan's Gamba Osaka, who play their semi-final in Yokohama tonight.
