Marrakech - Monterrey of Mexico have thrashed Egypt's Al-Ahly 5-1 on Wednesday to finish fifth at the FIFA Club World Cup.

Neri Cardozo opened the scoring for the CONCACAF champions after three minutes before Al-Ahly's Emad Meteab equalized in the eighth for the African champions.

But Monterrey rolled over its opponent from there with goals from Cesar Delgado, Leobardo Lopez, and Humberto Suarez helping build a big lead by halftime. Delgado capped the rout with his second in the 65th to become the continental tournament's all-time leading scorer.
