Beach Soccer World Cup – the final

Yo it’s the Beach Soccer World Cup final (11am Brazil time). Yesterday Uruguay beat France on penalty shoot out to make it to the final today! Sorry Eric Cantona, but no luck this time. So its Brazil (who beat Portugal) vz Uruguary – er, I wonder who’s gonna win. Looks like a dead cert for Brazil.

Damned if I can find anyone broadcasting the tournament in the UK. Thanks God for the internet! Check out the 2006 World Cup video clips of the best goals for example.

***News Flash*** Brazil beat Uruguay

“Brazil scored two goals in the final period to beat Uruguay 4-1 Sunday and win FIFA’s Beach Soccer World Cup.

“Buru, Duda, Benjamin and Sidney scored a goal each for the hosts, who clinched their 10th beach soccer title. Brazil was held to third place in FIFA’s inaugural tournament last year on Copacabana beach.

“Brazil won all six of its matches en route to this year’s title, its first since 2004.

“Buru scored first in the first period, while Uruguay equalized in the second with a goal by Ricar. Brazil retook the lead still in the second when Benjamin scored, and Duda and Sidney sealed the victory in front of nearly 7,000 fans with goals in the third period.” (IHT)
