Meanwhile, with the tournament now only a matter of weeks away, Egyptian side Al-Ahly became the latest club to qualify after winning the CAF (African) Champions League.

Al-Ahly secured their place in the prestigious tournament for the fourth time after springing a major shock by beating Esperance Sportive de Tunis 3-2 on aggregate.

With the first leg having finished 1-1 a fortnight ago, it was all to play for going into the return, and the Egyptian outfit earned a fully deserved victory with goals from Mohamed Nagy and Waleed Soliman, while an Esperance consolation goal came too late in the game to have a significant impact.

Their last appearance in the competition came back in 2008 when Al-Ahly were eliminated in the quarter-finals after being beaten 4-2 by Pachuca, and they will enter this season's tournament at the same stage, along with Monterrey, winners of the CONCACAF Champions League, and Ulsan Hyundai, who have qualified from Asia.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will enter the World Club Cup at the semi-final stage, alongside Corinthians from Brazil, with both of our games taking place at the Yokohama Stadium.

Our first match will take place on 13 December, before we compete for a second time three days later.
