FC Barcelona eased past the challenge post by Al Ahly in their second match of the Wembley cup. The 4-1 victory but wasn't enough for them to grab the inaugral Wembley Cup. Celtic later defeated Totenham 2-0 to claim the first edition of this friendly cup. Like the last match Guardiola put in another young but talented side ofr this encounter. The first half team were Jorquera, Mantoyo, Henrique, Muniesa, Abidal, Victor Sanchez, Rueda, Keita, Rochina, Bojan and Gai Assulin. Predictably GUardiola brought in Messi and Valdes in the second half. The second half team consist of Valdes, Dalmau, Caceres, Fontas, Espasandin, Dos Santos, Toure, Gudjonsen, Pedro, Messi and Jeffren. Al Ahly were destroyed by Celtic in their first match where the final score read 5-0. So it was expected for Barca to get past them with ease. These two matches also showed us that we probably might be having the best Defensive Midfielder in the world in the form of Yaya Toure. He was the best FC Barcelona player seen in the Wembley tournament.

As expected Al Ahly didn't create any trouble for Barca early on. In the 16th minute Rochina won the ball near half line and made a good run forward, he played the ball to Bojan on the left who fired a low shot past the goal keeper from the tightest angle towards the far end of the goal. In normal case that goal should have seen Barca taking more control but Barca appeared sloppy and Al Ahly looked more determined to grab an equaliser. In the 31st minute they grabbed the equaliser through El Egezy. FC Barcelona took the lead back when Rueda sent in a screamer from 30 yards out to the top right corner in the goal. In the 56th minute Jeffren put Barca 3-1 ahead when he latched on to a Pedro cross. And in the 67th minute Pedro completed the tally with a neat finish.
