On 1 December 1998, Real Madrid secured the second of their seven world champions' titles with a victory over Vasco de Gama in the Intercontinental Cup. The final was held at the National Stadium in Tokyo and Raúl produced a historic match-winning goal for the Whites. The striker settled the game in the final minutes, dribbling into the box and leaving two defenders on the ground before netting the winning goal.
Guus Hiddink's men had taken the lead earlier in the game courtesy of an own goal. Roberto Carlos crossed from the left and Nasa, while attempting to clear the ball, turned it into his own net. After the break, the Brazilians drew level through Juninho, but Raúl clinched the trophy with a memorable goal.
