We beat the top seeded team in the final . Balneario Camboriu 6 Vs 4 Florianopolis Beach Soccer Selected .- we were loosing in the second half 4 to 2 , but with some strategy tactical movements- stay behind the ball line to still it and giving the ball to the team best dribbler player moving to the attacking lane , it worked like a blitz and we popped 4 goals under 5 minutes to the final whistle .

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.
