Australia Futsal:

2008 World Cup – REUS- CATALONIA, Report.
Vikings futsal report:
I think most of the readers know by now that we have sent the Australian Women's Team to participate in the 1st Women's Futsal World Cup. We were grouped with Italy and Paraguay.
We beat both teams respectivaly and progressed on to the quarter final to play against Catalonia. We started up well and scored two goals through Jo Burgess. Unfortunately we lost the match 3-2 in the dying minutes of the 2nd half.
Catalonia went on to beat Russia and Colombia to win the World Cup.
The tournament was the best I have been involved for a long time. The final was televised to Spain and everything from the accommodation to the venue was world class.
Vikings Futsal has sponsored the trip with the attempt of making a mark in the world stage and to help promote Futsal in Australia specially among womens.
I would like to take this chance to congratulate all players and Vikings Futsal for making it possible to attend the first Womens World Futsal Cup.
