Playing Futsal did football legends like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho & Zico no harm at all. In fact, it probably started the chapters of their great stories.
The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Rooney credit the skills-based game with making them the players they are today.
Perhaps it is no coincidence that the countries who excel at futsal – Brazil, Spain, Italy and Portugal – also feature prominently in the top world rankings.
Futsal makes players more difficult to play against in 11-a-side and gives them more tools in their armoury to be a more complete footballer. Players find it challenging as space is at a premium on a futsal court, the ball has to be manipulated far more closely to the body. Players also have to do clever things with the ball and their foot skills improve. There is no hiding place on the court, so decision making is absolutely paramount.
Who knows… you could well be the Next Best Thing in football.
