After NY Ecuador FC ‘s 8-0 loss to Female UnoChapecó, Head Coach Tony Toral posted what is the main picture of this article and said “The first international experience for our women, an 8-0 loss against one of the best teams in the world. What a fantastic experience for them, and thank you to Copo Mundo do Futsal for organizing an amazing competition.” This post by Tong shows that even in defeat, there is something to learn! Former England Futsal International Liam Palfreeman said of his first ever futsal match, “I had never heard of futsal before I was invited to play, I went along and we lost my first match 10-0, some would be put off by such an experience, but not me, I loved it, the movement, the skill, the intelligence of their play, I want to learn more, I wanted to better.” Today, the players learned from their opening match and drew 1-1 against City Futsal Atlas/Chaed Futsal.
