Ronaldinho may have ended up on the wrong end of the 3-1 scoreline in the Club World Cup semi-final, but the Raja Casablanca players were so taken by the Brazilian that they were seen practically taking the boots off of his feet at the end of the game.


Casablanca had the advantage of playing at home in Morocco, but their victory against the South Americans still came as something of a surprise.

They'll now play European champions Bayern Munich in the final.

Ronaldinho, 33, may be in the twilight of his career, but the shoe-grab certainly proves he's still a huge draw for players and fans alike.

And given that he can do this with his feet, it's not such a shock.
