Hosts and favourites Brazil take on Russia in the final of the 2011 Futsal Grand Prix.
The Brazilian team booked their place in the final on Friday, impressing yet again with a 4-1 win over Iran at the Amadeu Teixeira Arena in Manaus.
Brazil had finished top of their group at the 7th Futsal Grand Prix with a 100 per cent record, scoring 20 goals in 3 games.
Their impressive run this week continued on Thursday with an awesome 12-0 win over Uruguay in the quarter-finals, before the green and yellow team beat Iran in a highly entertaining game on Friday night.
Brazil keeper Tiago admitted afterwards: “We knew that Iran would be more difficult than the other teams we have faced.
“The margin was stretched when you look at how well they played. I worked more than all the other games, but in the end, we deserved the win.”
Russia booked their place in Sunday’s final with a 3-2 win over Argentina (after extra-time).
Russia played much better than they had in Thursday’s 4-2 win over the Czech Republic and Brazilian-born Russian Cirilo, who scored one of the goals in the game, said on Friday night: “We were better in both halves in all aspects.
“We conceded a goal from a set piece, which had been talked about, but we went to extra-time, and managed to score.
“We are in the final and this was our objective in the first place.”
While Russia are in the final, they will have to take their game to another level against the hosts, who have impressed throughout the tournament.
A Russian win shouldn’t be ruled out, but Brazil are favourites to be victorious.
Prediction: Brazil to win.
