Pachuca Lose in Club World Cup

CF Pachuca of Mexico fell at the first hurdle in Japan, going down 1-0 to Tunisian side Etoile Sportive Du Sahel in the quarter final of the Club World Cup 2007.

Pachuca dominated for large periods of the game in Tokyo, but were unable to capitalize on their advantage with efforts from Damian Alvarez, Juan Carlos Cacho and Gabriel Cabellero all going close in the first-half and a goal disallowed early in the second half.

The Mexicans were made to pay for not hammering home their advantage five minutes from time when Moussa Narry's deflected 35 yard strike slipped past Miguel Calero in the Pachuca goal. Etoile held on for the remaining five minutes to book their place in the semi-final.

Etoile's next opponents will now be Copa Libertadores winners Boca Juniors on the 12th December.
