Everybody tells me they saw nice games but what struck me was that most teams played from a closed defense, looking to attack. Countries who played open and free were punished by counters. Except deserved winner Germany, who tried to create triangles using the whole field, played stunning football.
Also I looked to all those players who would have learned their technical skills by playing Futsal; I only saw a few. Therefore, please let us develop our own Futsal sport and dissociate ourselves from the so called “benefit” of famous football players who pretend they started with Futsal. Best player of the last WC, Lionel Messi, started as a young player at FC Barcelona and developed himself from grassroots training.
Still a lot of countries have to develope their Futsal program. I hope they will do this by using the elements that belong to Futsal: technique, tactique & physical and perform this in the space of 20 x 40 meters. This is the only way to achieve our goal: attention and own identity for Futsal.
