- City leave domestic slump behind in semi-final victory
- Guardiola confirms Haaland and De Bruyne will miss final
Rodri urged Manchester City to finish the job and make history when they face Fluminense in the Club World Cup final on Friday, admitting his side had needed to shake off a “very bad feeling in the changing room” caused by a slump in their domestic form.
City swatted aside Urawa Red Diamonds with a commanding semi-final performance in Jeddah, easing three goals clear of their opponents within an hour. It was an impressive display of application little more than 72 hours after they had been pegged back to a 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace, leaving them fourth in the top flight. Now they have a chance to rule the world and win their fifth honour in 2023.
