World Cup 1/4’s: Falcao Saves Brazil From Elimination.

0
71

BANGKOK – The most famous futsaller of all time saved the day for Brazil as they came back from a 2-0 deficit at halftime to defeat rivals Argentina to advance to the FIFA Futsal World Cup semi-final in an extra-time thriller. Falcao notched a pair including the one in extra time. Italy also pulled off a remarkable comeback as they defeated Portugal 4-2 in extra time. Colombia continued their unexpected run to the semis by defeating Ukraine 3-1 while Spain barely held off a tough Russian squad by a 3-2 score. It was easily one of the wildest, action-packed days in futsal history.

The most wonderful time is here for futsal fans as the 2012 FIFA Futsal World Cup is underway in Thailand from Nov 1-18th. Futsal Canada is live on location and will bring you constant updates, photos and interviews with futsal’s elite.


Futsal legend Falcao scored two big goals including the winner as
Brazil came back to beat Argentina and will play Colombia in the semis.
