Backseat drivers

While they were can not dictate the action using their feet, suspended Colombian duo Angellott Caro along with Jorge Abril did everything they are able to to impact it using vocal cords instead. 

Captain Caro was the ball of nervous strength, shouting, clapping, screaming. Abril remained somewhat more composed, though both tried for you to transfer their knowledge towards the field. But, unfortunately for them, once it went to FIFA 17 Coins fifacoin-buy we were holding just two more angry, and eventually pained, Cafeteros fans.

How’s your touch?

Everyone needs a little time with the ball heading to their groove, surely? Not Russia’s Ivan Milovanov. Sat on the bench for that first half against Vietnam, he took to court at half-time to be sharp. Keeper Georgy Zamtaradze served him a hardcore opening challenge, hammering the ball 40m high between the rafters for Milovanov to manage. Unfazed as it plummeted time for earth, his control was remarkable, plucking it out from the sky like it seemed to be the simplest thing on the planet. A touch Diego Maradona could well be proud of.

The stat 0 - Colombia and Paraguay’s clash is the first at a FIFA Futsal 

World Cup to separate goalless after extra occasion. It was only the actual fourth penalty shoot-out in tournament history and 4311 days since last 0-0 draw with normal time. You have to go completely back to 1 Dec 2004 when, in the Linkou Gymnasium in Chinese Taipei, Ukraine and Argentina played out a 40-minute stalemate.

The words

"Eder Lima could not really score today but it’s good to see others could. It demonstrates the strength of our own team as we usually are not dependant only on the performance of one specific player. " 

Sergey Skorovich, Russia coach

"Russia had to win and they also wanted it. We just wanted for you to win. The logic prevails. We were not suitable physically and mentally to make it, but I’m still very pleased with my players. " Bruno Garcia, Vietnam coach Next matchday
