Fernando makes Futsalroos preliminary squad

It's been a long time between drinks for the Futsalroos, since their failure to make the world cup a couple of years back. They have a new coach now, for starters. And he's picked two whole Victorians in a squad notorious for its dominance by players from New South Wales and the ACT. One of those players is our very own Fernando De Moraes, who has been selected as part of the preliminary squad to take part in the AFC Futsal Championship ASEAN Zone qualifiers at the end of February. If they do well enough there, they qualify for the AFC Futsal championships in Uzebkistan in late May. If they can make it out of there in the top four, probably, they'll go the next world cup. I think.

Anyway before those massive dreams of a South player that isn't Patrick Kisnorbo being on the world stage can come about, firstly Nando has to make the team that plays in the zone qualifiers and you can follow the trail from there. Of course, we wish him all the best in his endeavours, and we'll try and keep you updated. 

By the way, this news was sourced from the good people of whatever this awesome website is. I think I used it heaps for some of my Futsalroos OzFootball research back in the day.

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
