The Canadian Soccer Association is in the process of selection it's futsal coaching staff for the upcoming Concacaf qualifying berth for the 2016 Futsal World Cup In Colombia.
Since there is no national futsal league in Canada , it is a difficult task for the Canadian Soccer Association futsal committee chaired by Charlie Cuzzetto .
There are a few people in Canada with futsal knowledge of the game played on court .
Brazilian born Geraldo Ferrari would be my pick , Ferrari played futsal in Brazil and coached futsal in Montreal and has been involved with soccer in Nova Scotia.
Also I would have the Colombian born Jaime Meza as an assistant coach .
Jaime played good level of futsal back in his old country - Colombia Futsal and has been involved in the development of futsal in Saskatchewan and in Canada.
Kris Fernandes is one of the drive force of the continuing development of futsal in Canada , and should be considered for a position with the Canadian National Futsal Team along with Marcelo (Minhoca) Zuge as coaching advisor - of course there are other applicants that are learning about the game of futsal , but are eager to take on the job.
It is crucial that we have experienced futsal coaching staff to represent Canada in such a high profile event .
Also, there are some old timers , such as Canadian born and former Canadian Soccer Association soccer player and former futsal Canada coaches Ike Mackay- who captained Canada 8 Vs US Futsal 3 - in the first North American Futsal meeting . Les Malbon and myself who have been with the game of futsal since it's stardom in Canada .
There are other names to consider, but, Geraldo Ferrari has the futsal knowledge, expertise , experience, and leadership required to conduct an elite Canadian Futsal Team.
I know that there are good soccer/futsal players to form a Canadian Futsal Team to qualify Canada in the Concacaf region and represent well our country in Colombia.
