Raja Eye Bayern Upset To Win Club World Cup

It was only a very short while ago that Raja Casablanca were a club in crisis. The defeats were coming thick and fast for the reigning Moroccan champions, triggering the departure of coach Mohamed Fakhir just a few days before the start of the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2013.
And yet in the space of just a week and three matches, Les Rajaouis have rediscovered their winning touch, capping their revival by beating Atletico Mineiro in Wednesday’s semi-final, an unexpected triumph that has booked them a date with the mighty FC Bayern Munchen in the final slated for Saturday.
“The dream is far from over yet and we’ll be giving it all we have against Bayern, right up to the final whistle”, a jubilant Mouhssine Iajour told FIFA.com after scoring a goal and winning a penalty against the Brazilians, who momentarily pulled level at 1-1 only to fall to a 3-1 defeat. “We never give up. This team has got so much mental strength to draw on”.
