Fifa Clubs World Cup-Japan 2008

Tunisia's Etoile beat Mexico's Pachuca in Japan


By Alastair Himmer

TOKYO, Dec 9 (Reuters) - Tunisia's Etoile Sahel overcame Mexico's Pachuca 1-0 at the Club World Cup on Sunday to set up a lucrative semi-final against Boca Juniors.

Midfielder Moussa Narry's deflected 25-metre drive five minutes from time settled an absorbing contest in favour of the African champions against the run of play in Tokyo.

"I'm happy we survived," Etoile manager Bertrand Marchand told reporters. "Pachuca are a better team than us and have more experience. We're looking forward to Boca -- and then AC Milan."

Argentine giants Boca await Etoile on Wednesday. European champions AC Milan play either Japan's Urawa Reds or Iranian side Sepahan in the second semi-final on Thursday.

Sepahan will be aiming to avenge their defeat by Urawa in last month's Asian Champions League final when the teams meet in Toyota on Monday.

Pachuca will consider themselves unlucky after sustained early pressure led to striker Juan Carlos Cacho crashing a header against the crossbar in the 15th minute.

Christian Gimenez shaved the bar with a free kick while defender Julio Manzur had a goal ruled out for offside midway through the second half.

But the Mexican side's dreams of a money-spinning clash against Boca were shattered when Narry's blast flew in after a wicked deflection off defender Leobardo Lopez.

"We played very well but the result was unfortunate," said Pachuca coach Enrique Meza. "We dominated the game but couldn't find a way through. It wasn't to be."

Brazilian sides won the first two editions of the new-look FIFA tournament, with Internacional stunning Barcelona 1-0 last year and Sao Paulo beating Liverpool by the same score in 2005
