There is no doubt that Auckland City were the surprise package of the tournament. Despite arriving in North Africa as rank outsiders, the New Zealanders stormed into the last four, where they suffered a narrow defeat to South American champions San Lorenzo, and ultimately became the first Oceania side to secure third place at a FIFA Club World Cup. Captain Ivan Vicelich played a key role in this success, using his awareness and presence to create an effective link between defence and attack and consistently pushing his team forward. Winning the adidas Bronze Ball is the icing on the cake in what has been a memorable tournament for the 38-year-old.

Awesome !!!

What a day for Ivan Vicelich to stand on the podium next to Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo. News
