You cannot fault the player’s effort on Sunday to bring home the Club World Cup and it be fair the Brazilians probably to walk away with the crown. And Oscar insists Chelsea gave their all in their quest to land the trophy.
There have been many who have doubted just how much the blues actually wanted the title and believe that we didn’t put everything into the final at the weekend.
And Rafa Benitez’s men were subjected to another frustrating and boring game as Corinthians walked away with a dull 1-0 victory.
However, there seemed to be too many players not putting in there all and Oscar was apparently one of those stars that failed to raise his game, but he is defiantly stating him and his team-mates did not take their foot off the gas in a fixture in which we should have had our first bit of silverware this season.
As quoted on Sky Sports he said: “I didn’t think we lacked effort, this happens.
“The whole of the Chelsea team need to learn how to play decisive games like this.
“Chelsea wanted this title so much; we have been training a lot in London for this competition. But defeat happens. Corinthians played well and deserved to win.
“It was a good game, we just didn’t create as much as usual, Cassio made some great saves and Corinthians scored when they had the chance.”
We could all see just how much some of the players wanted it after the game as we saw the emotion on their faces and although we didn’t give everything, we gave enough to suggest that we were there to win it and not just take part.
