Five times champions!
Brazil remains the strongest nation in the world in futsal.
Nov 27, 2012
As per the predictions, the seventh edition of the FIFA Futsal World Cup ended with the final played between the two best teams in the world, Brazil and Spain. At Bangkok Futsal Arena, where the Mondo Fast Break System 2 surface is installed, the two teams met in a game very spectacular and balanced, that only in overtime saw the South Americans prevail with the result of 3-2. The fifth world title in Brazil was thanks to a network of Neto (voted best player of the tournament), a few seconds after the end of the match. Spain, which in 2008 had lost the final on penalties always against Brazil, has proven to be the only team to be able to counter the domino of South America, which this year won all seven matches. A very good result for Italy, which once again was able to get on the podium (after the second in 2004 and third in 2008) defeated in the match for third place by Colombia. Particularly pleased with the player Stefano Mammarella, who was awarded the prize for best goalkeeper of the tournament. The big surprise was Colombia, which debut in the competition came in fourth.
