FUTSAL AT CALI 2013 - THE WORLD GAMES: TEAM CANADA Men's will play Russia in the first game of Pool C

TEAM CANADA, led by Uruguayan Canadian coach Oscar Cardozo and his technical assistant coach, Argentinean Canadian Gabriel Soza, have received the results of Cali 2013 The World Games Draw for the Men's Futsal Competition. A very competitive pool for the red and white with the maple leaf in the heart, having as rivals in the first stage Argentina, Russia (third in the world) and Czech Republic.

Cardozo has been training with the group intensely during the last month - team already have been practicing at Westview Collegiate for the past three months - and in its latest friendly they defeated Regional TEAM NIAGARA FC by the final score of 8-2 with 3 goals by Nicolas Martinez, 2 by Johan Vargas, 1 by Mario Espinoza, 1 Martin De Marco, 1 Nicolas Farfaglia, Two-times Canadian World Cup Goalkeeper Joshua Lemos, Chiruzo, Nicolas Cordero-Ramirez and Mauricio Hernandez, were in the first 12 players for that friendly.



Currently, TEAM CANADA is working with a roster of 24 players, but only 12 of them will make to the final cut for the Futsal at The World Games, to be held in Gualajara de Buga, 60 kms away from Cali, Colombia, during July 27 to August 4, 2013. For the semifinals, the top national team in each of the three groups, plus the second best overall, will play for the right for bronze to gold medals.

Daniel Cerros, president of Canadian Futsalon Federation and director of the World Futsal Association and futsal development director at Concafutsal, is very optimistic by the serious work being done. He also has secured the organization of the AMF Women's Pre-World Cup Challenge to be held in Greater Toronto Area at the POWERADE Centre, a sports and entertainment arena WITH 5,000 PEOPLE total capacity and 1,800 parking spaces.
