Uruguay vs. Czech Republic – who will finish 7th? (credit: Ryu Voelkel)
Uruguay take on Czech Republic in today’s 7th play-off at the 2011 Futsal Grand Prix after both sides lost on Friday.
Uruguay took on Guatemala on Friday and were looking to bounce back from a 12-0 hammering by hosts Brazil in the quarter-finals 24 hours earlier.
But the South Americans suffered their second defeat in as many days, with the game going to penalties after a 4-4 draw and Guatemala edging it 4-3 in the shootout.
The Czech Republic had lost to Russia in Thursday’s semi-finals and were looking to bounce back yesterday against Paraguay, but the Europeans were second best throughout the game and lost 6-2.
The Czechs have struggled for goals throughout the tournament and in the final game of the tournament, they may find that Uruguay edge it tonight.
Prediction: Uruguay to win.
