Comment of Coach Bruno GARCIA of Japan Futsal National Team
Along with Brazil and Argentina, Paraguay is one of the top teams from South American, and they have advanced to the quarterfinals in the previous FIFA Futsal World Cup. Many of the Paraguayan players belong to teams in Europe, especially in Italy. The team is led by coach Carlos CHILAVERT, who has played in Spain and Italy for many years during his playing career, and similar to coach Diego GIUSTOZZI of the defending world champions, Argentina Futsal National Team, he implements the European playing styles to the South American style to construct an extremely competitive team. Before our previous tournament, we were given the opportunity to face the Argentina Futsal National Team. Now that we are preparing for the AFC Futsal Championship, we hope to make the most of this opportunity to prepare ourselves ahead of the tournament.
