Deportivo Saprissa will face Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Club World Championship after Cristian Bolanos' 47th-minute strike saw off Sydney FC.

The winger controlled a long ball on his chest and guided the ball past Sydney keeper Clint Bolton.

The Costa Ricans were marginally better throughout against hard-working Sydney, who were captained by ex-Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke.

Alvin Ceccoli was sent off late on for a challenge on Saprissa's keeper.
