Karim Benzema scored in the second half to ensure Real Madrid rebounded from its poor performance in the Champions League with its first victory at Sevilla in four years.Benzema?s 64th-minute header clinched the 1-0 Spanish league victory on Sunday.

Vaclik then saved a one-on-one situation against Dani Carvajal.Sevilla, coached by former Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui, responded with the combined speed of Lucas Ocampos and Jesus Navas on its right flank. Substitute Oliver Torres added more playmaking in the middle when he came on early in the second half.The goal came after Madrid gained possession once again which allowed Carvajal to reach the end line and float a cross for Benzema to head over Vaclik, who was caught on his wrong foot.That was only the second goal Sevilla?s defense had conceded in six matches in all competitions this season.The loss was Sevilla?s first of the campaign.Madrid is in second place, behind leader Athletic Bilbao on goal difference.

FIFA selected China as host of the inaugural edition of the expanded Club World Cup in 2021 but delayed a decision on how the 24 slots for the tournament will be distributed.A proposal on how many teams would qualify from the six confederations was shared with FIFA Council members for approval at a meeting in Shanghai on Thursday Alex Morgan Jersey , including Europe having eight participants.But a vote on the participation model was pulled because Oceania?s only way of qualification would be its Champions League winner first defeating the domestic champion of host nation China in a playoff.Oceania is pushing for a guaranteed place in the group stage in China in June 2021, as FIFA?s task force on the revamped Club World Cup originally proposed in March. That is according to people with knowledge of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity with The Associated Press to discuss the contents of a private meeting.FIFA only said the qualification process ?will be finalized in a consultation process between FIFA and the six confederations.?FIFA President Gianni Infantino said the governing body will make ?zero? out of the new event because all the profits will be reinvested back into club football.?I hope China will help FIFA to organize it in financial terms,? Infantino said after the meeting in Shanghai. ?It will be the club football event which will generate the highest revenue per match.?Infantino said FIFA along with the Chinese soccer federation and government will push ahead with planning on the tournament.Staging the Club World Cup in China will be a test of human rights policies that FIFA now subjects host nations to.The Chinese government has been accused of cracking down on human rights and pro-democracy activism.

Infantino said. ?Countries all over the world are going through difficult times. It is not the mission of FIFA to solve the problems of the world. The mission is to organize football in all of the countries. ? We do that by bringing football to the people, not by criticizing.?A previous FIFA plan seen by the AP in March proposed the Club World Cup running from June 17 through July 4 in 2021, taking the slot originally set aside for the Confederations Cup competition that is no longer due to be contested.For some players from Africa and the CONCACAF region it could be a busy summer Mallory Pugh Jersey , with their regional national competitions proposed to start on July 9.The revamped Club World Cup is due to be staged every four years, replacing the current annual format that features the six champions of continental competitions and the host nation?s domestic title winner. The final two editions of the seven-team annual Club World Cup are being staged in Qatar this December and in December 2020.Based on FIFA?s proposed qualification procedures seen by the AP ahead of the Shanghai meeting, teams could qualify for the overhauled Club World Cup in 2021 without having to win a regional competition even at the expense of some champions.Caps on the number of representatives from a single country in the new format raises the prospect of even winners of continental competitions missing out.EUROPEWith eight slots, Europe will be the best represented continent at the Club World Cup even after rejecting four additional places, helping FIFA drive ticket sales and broadcast revenue.All the Champions League and Europa League winners from 2018 to 2021 are set to qualify although that could be dependent on UEFA determining the maximum number of slots per country. Clubs from England and Spain have dominated those competitions in recent years.Should a team enjoy multiple wins across the competitions, the free slot is due to go to the most recent Champions League runner-up.Real Madrid won the Champions League in 2018 when Atletico Madrid triumphed in the Europa League. English clubs swept last season?s trophies, with Liverpool victorious in the Champions League and Chelsea in the second-tier competition.SOUTH AMERICAWhile South America will get six slots, only the process for distributing four of them has been settled.

So, if the winners and runners-up in 2019 and 2020 are all from the same country, the two losing Asian Champions League semifinalists in 2020 would contest a playoff for a route into the global tournament.NORTH AND CENTRAL AMERICAThe 2021 CONCACAF Champions League finalists will qualify but a process for deciding the third slot was left hanging in the FIFA Council document.Mexican teams have won all 11 titles since the regional competition was rebooted as the Champions League. Only three of the finals have not been an all-Mexican lineup.But a cap of two teams per country from this region will exist at the Club World Cup.AFRICAThe simplest qualification will be from Africa, with the places going to the 2021 Champions League finalists and the winner of a playoff between the two semifinalists.The plan is complicated by a cap on two teams per country.OCEANIAOceania is the only one of FIFA?s six confederations not guaranteed a place at the Club World Cup.
