Gary Cahill admits the true importance of the Club World Cup had finally "sunk in" ahead of Chelsea's semi-final against Monterrey.

The tournament has not exactly been at the top of the list of priorities for European clubs down the years, with the Champions League seen as the ultimate prize. But Cahill revealed how spending four days in Japan - where the competition is treated very seriously indeed - had driven home the competition's significance.

"When I came to Chelsea, I came to win trophies," the England defender said. "This is a big opportunity to do that. It's a fantastic competition and one that doesn't come around very often."
