In 1985, after five years developing futsal in Canada, primarily in Nanaimo and Vancouver Island, we received from Fifusa, an invitation to participate at the Second World Futsal Championships in Spain.We realize that, it was an opportunity to spread futsal in the mainland and across Canada.The Vancouver Italian Canadian Soccer team was in Nanaimo playing in the Pacific Coast Semi-Pro Soccer league. Watching the game, Leo Beier and I, spotted some gifted soccer players. Talking to the Vancouver Team Manager  Charlie Cuzzetto, we went over details about futsal in Canada, and from that we arranged a meeting with the Vancouver players.Charlie and tthe Vancouver players, never saw a futsal ball or new the rules of the game, I explained about futsal and the event in Spain.











Without government funding, we formed a team, Charlie Cuzzetto 
did the manager duties, fundraising, booking gym time for training, and travel arrangement.

Due to working commitment, Canadian Futsal Team Head Coach Ike Mackay did not go to Spain. Carlos Mateus shared his  coaching knowledge with the players, as well as  made many trips on the Vancouver Island Ferry Boat. We had to pay for the travel air tickets, to represent Canada in the Second World Futsal Cup in Spain. The Brazilian sporting manufacturer Penalty sponsored the uniforms, and the Spanish Futsal Association paid for meals, accommodations and local transportation.

In Spain the  five star hotel , on the waterfront of a naturalist beach in Mar de Las Cana, (boarding Portugal), in the city of Huelva, Serville, was bonus .training futsal on the white sand, surrounded by topless tourist gathering was not an easy task.

However; Canada drew Uruguay, Spain and Australia.
In the first game against Uruguay, the Canadian Players shown the world that they were there to compete and displayed a great performance, before the seventeen years old, Canadian goalkeeper Frank Lecce, allows the Uruguayans score three times, one of our best player Ivan Belfiore had sum burn, only played in the second half. 
In the second game against Spain, Canada scored an impressive goal; the ball went between the Spanish keeper legs, Joe Cuzzetto, the goal scorer until now talks about it.

The Spanish team was well prepared, during the qualifying round robin, defeated Australia , Canada and Uruguay.  Brazil beat Spain in the final game,  3 to 1 to  claim  the second world title.
Canada, Japan , Australia and Holland were newcomers as well.
