Travis Dodd's late goal gave Australia's Adelaide United a 2-1 win over a stubborn Waitakere United of New Zealand in Thursday's opening match of the Club World Cup.

Adelaide progressed to a quarterfinal against Japan's Gamba Osaka and an early chance to avenge its defeat to the Japanese side in the Asian Champions League final.
