A Brazilian website claims to have found Chelsea's tactics for the World Club Cup final in amongst a pile of rubbish.

Paolo Guerrero scored the only goal of the game as Brazilian side Corinthians upset the Blues 1-0 in Yokohama, Japan, although Chelsea actually spelled the Peruvian striker's name wrong on the tactics sheet, referring to him as 'Guerro.'

On the sheet that contained details on how to defend corners was a nugget of information advising the players to immediately step up after they clear the first ball, while another sheet warned the Chelsea players to 'be aware of the counter attack'.

A further sheet warned Chelsea to be alert to long shots, with Rafael Benitez telling his players to be wary of potential rebounds.

Chelsea also picked out Guerrero as being the danger man, although that did not stop him scoring the only goal.

Globoesporte obtained the tactics in the Chelsea dressing room after the match.

"Among sandwiches, energy drinks and torn pieces of sports equipment, the British team left in the locker room simple notes about Corinthians and detailed explanations of what each player should do at set-pieces," the website revealed.
