In the Benjamin, the champion was Santos, who participated in the competition for the second consecutive year and conquered the trophy again.

Santos did not take notice of City and was already to the halftime winning by 7-1. The pace decreases in the second stage, but the commanders of Felipe Sá still scored three more goals and won by 10-1.

The Brazilian team had the MVP of the competition (Renan) and the goalscorer (Eduardo and Pedro Henrique) of the category.

The most exciting game of the day. Rio de Janeiro played closed on defense for 40 minutes with an impressive application, and made life difficult for FC Barcelona, who found themselves behind the scoring in a throw of stopped ball.

I look forward to seeing them compete against the best in the world and I am sure they will do well," said Doug Reed, Tournament Director of World Futsal Cup VI.

In England, there is one club fighting for the growth of futsal since 2007. It is Carlisle, founded by a group of friends who created the club to play FA National League. Besides that, they have academies designated to educate a player starting at the age of 4 and taking them up to the age of 18.

There are players, coaches, federations and clubs promoting the futsal in England. We should see a very impressive growth in the country during the next years, and who is working inside the country could talk more about the improvement of futsal in the country that created the soccer.

“We have seen a huge increase in youth participation in Futsal here in the UK. Lots of clubs and academies are now looking at futsal as a development tool for soccer as well as there being many designated futsal clubs that look to create futsal players for their own teams”, said Jon Reay, coach of Carlisle.

However, players don’t like just training sessions, so they compete in good tournaments as well. The next one for Carlisle is World Futsal Cup VI, in Blanes, Spain, this December. This beautiful city located closer with Barcelona will receive the best teams of the world in a high-level championship. The sixth edition will have great clubs like FC Barcelona, Santos and Corinthians, beside others from USA, Australia and Colombia.

“We want the boys to go there and enjoy it. It will be a fantastic experience not just for the players but for the coaches and parents as well,” said Reay. “We want the boys to really work hard for each other and be confident in what they do. It’s another step in their development as players and people. I’m sure it’ll be a trip of a lifetime and one not to be forgotten.”
