CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Brazil 5 Portugal 1.

We just can’t get enough positive news surrounding the female futsal game. Today, the 1st international womens tournament kicked off in Spain. Check out the amazingly amped-up videos links for the competition at the bottom of the story.

National teams representing all 5 FIFA confederations are competing for the championship which is being hosted by the Spanish Football Federation. The first matchday featured some good games including two tight contests including a 2-1 thriller between Japan and Guatemala while Spain edged out Russia by a 3-1 scoreline.

Portugal showcased their legendary defensive capabilities while being able to put in a few goals as they defeated Thailand 5-0. World powers Brazil, as expected, destroyed their South American neighbours Venezuela by a lopsided 14-0 score.

Portugal takes on Brazil in the final on Saturday.

The tournament will run all week before culminating in the championship match on Saturday afternoon. Here are the competing teams with full scores and schedules. For incredible match photos and more details on team rosters etc visit www.futsalplanet.com
