And Portugal is in the semi-finals of the Futsal World Cup! The Quinas team beat the Spanish team by 4-2 after having been 2-0 down.
The great performance of the two goalkeepers, Bebé on the Portuguese side and Herrero on the Spanish side, led to a goalless goal at half-time, but the story soon changed with the start of the second half. ‘Nuestros hermanos’ entered the match stronger, and in the early moments Adolfo placed the ball over the Portuguese goalkeeper to open the scoring, seconds before Adri extended the free-kick advantage.
Portugal did not give up and controlled the final ten minutes. André Coelho, on 31′, shot from the middle of the street and had a little help from Herrero, and Zicky tied the match on 35′, after a laboratory play from a side throw.
In extra time, Spain failed to take advantage of five to four, and a great defensive performance by the National Team consumed two more goals: Raya put the ball in his own goal in the first half, after trying a cut. Pany Varela took advantage, in the second half, of the fact that there was no goalkeeper and shot from the middle of the street to a deserted goal.
The team of quinas is now awaiting the result of the match between Iran and Kazakhstan, which is played at 18:00, to know the next opponent.
