A few days ago, Gamba Osaka of Japan defeated Pachuca of Mexico to claim third place in the FIFA Club World Cup. Interestingly, both teams had one opponent in common this year -- the Houston Dynamo.
Gamba beat Houston 6-1 in the ridiculous Pan-Pacific Championship in February. Houston later defeated Pachuca 2-0 during the Superliga tournament. Does that make Houston the fourth-best team in the world? Of course not, but it's an interesting footnote.
