Al Ain FC has celebrated a silver win in the Fifa Club World Cup this weekend, coming second to Real Madrid in the tournament.
It’s a real celebration for the football club, which was up against world heavy-weight football teams, and has held its own in the competition.
The team lost in the final to Real Madrid, 4-1, but the UAE is still celebrating the team’s success in the cup, surpassing expectations, and catapulting UAE football onto the global stage.
Dubai’s Ruler and Crown Prince both tweeted their congratulations to Al Ain FC.
