“I learned football by playing it, in Futsal, in the street and in the park. By the time I joined Sao Paulo I had already developed my style of play. At the Club they just had to say to me ‘go here and do what you already know’ or ‘do this and then just do what you know’. The skill was already there, nurtured by endless hour of Futsal”.

Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA. It earned the status of FIFA’s official form of indoor soccer in the 1980s as it was recognized as a scaled down version of outdoor soccer played indoors. It is a 5 v 5 small-sided game played on a hard surfaced, basketball sized court with a smaller, heavier low bounce ball. Futsal is played with touchline boundaries and without walls.
