Piazon: Chelsea displayed 'no will'

Chelsea forward Lucas Piazon has criticised his team-mates following their Club World Cup final defeat to Corinthians.

The 10-man Blues lost 1-0 to the South American side through a Paolo Guerrero header in the 69th minute which was followed by a number of missed opportunities to equalise, Fernando Torres squandering the easier of the chances.

Gary Cahill was sent off late for a stray elbow, and it was a miserable way to finish the tournament for the European champions.

"We played without any determination, without a love for the shirt. Nobody wanted to play football. At least Oscar did try," Piazon said.

"I won't name names, but the team played with no will. You can't play a final like this without the will to play. That's unacceptable.

"We lacked a lot of things, especially the will to be a champion. I think Ramires, David Luiz, just the Brazilians were the only ones that gave their everything, showed character and that is why they are sad.

"I haven't spoken to anybody, but I've noticed David Luiz was upset. It's not a coincidence, he was one of the few that cared about the match, that gave his all."
