The FIFA Club World Cup Trophy Tour continued with a stopover in Mexico on Sunday. The country will be represented at the competition, which takes place in Morocco on 10-20 December, by 2014 CONCACAF Champions League winners Cruz Azul.

The gleaming trophy was on display at the Patio Universidad Shopping Mall in Mexico City, with Cementeros goalkeeper Yosgart Gutierrez and full-back Omar Israel putting in appearances at the event.

The players signed autographs and took questions from the media, with both saying they were excited at taking on the world’s best in the tournament. Keen not to tempt fate, however, they stopped short of having their photographs taken with the trophy.

“It would be fantastic to have it in the Cruz Azul trophy cabinet and I hope we can be the first to achieve something big in this competition,” said Gutierrez.

The trophy’s next destination is Auckland, New Zealand, where it will be on show on 1-2 November.
