Barcelona were crowned FIFA Club World Cup winners when they thrashed Brazilian side Santos, 4-0, in Japan.

The win confirms Barcelona’s standing as the best club team in the world.

“We played a complete game,” captain Carles Puyol said. “It was a good game, an intense game and we’re very happy with the result.”

The match between the European and South American champions in Yokohama had been billed as a showdown between Messi, widely acknowledged as the best player in the world, and Brazilian star Neymar. But it was no contest - with Messi the star of match - and named the tournament’s most valuable player - as Barcelona won the competition.

“Barcelona deserved to win. They are the best team in the world and we learned an important lesson,” said Neymar of Santos, Brazil.
