England Futsal Head Coach Peter Sturgess: When I was asked to consider getting involved with the England Futsal team, I immediately asked to see as much footage of their previous games as possible. I needed to know what I might be letting myself in for! Futsal focusBy Peter Sturgess. Monday, 13 October 2008. New England Futsal Head Coach Peter Sturgess is here with the first edition of his regular column for TheFA.com, reflecting on his early meetings with the players. When I was asked to consider getting involved with the England Futsal team, I immediately asked to see as much footage of their previous games as possible. I needed to know what I might be letting myself in for! For the previous two years, I had been working with the England Deaf Futsal team and it was through this involvement that I fell in love with the game. I saw a game that encompassed everything that I like about football. It was skill based and the level of technical proficiency drew me into the ‘game’ immediately. It had a tempo that would change dramatically in the blink of an eye; from patient possession play to electric counter attacking moves. This was something I had to get to know more about. My two years with the Deaf Futsal squad included trips to Bulgaria and Moscow to participate in European and World championships – a dramatic learning curve, particularly regarding the many tactical aspects of this fast flowing, fluid, end-to-end game. Watching the DVD footage of the England team, I was pleasantly surprised. The results were not what we would’ve liked but my predecessor Graeme Dell had assembled a squad with a great work ethic and an apparent desire to do well and take this programme forward. There was definitely something to work with. Many of the goals conceded were down to individual errors and no Coach, however well prepared, can legislate for these.


And so my first training session arrived. I spoke to the assembled squad and tried to clearly identify what my ‘philosophy’ for the team would be. It’s not rocket science and it is based around three important things:- Creating a tight defensive unit that is difficult to penetrate and score against. - Improving ball retention so that WE control the tempo of the game. - Incorporating lethal counter attacking into our ‘game-plan’ to ensure a high attack:goals ratio. So the cards were laid on the table and I sat back and waited for a response. I certainly got it as the players listened, practised and enquired about what this meant and what I wanted from that; exactly the response I had wanted. I had eliminated all of the popular ‘Futsal drills’ that seem to have grown up with the development of the game. I am not saying there is no place for them, but my players needed to become better at ‘playing the game of Futsal’ and the best way to do this is through carefully constructed practice sessions that help develop the various aspects of the game. This methodology will be a feature of all future training weekends as an attempt is made to help the players understand the game. There will be difficult times ahead, I am sure, as we embark upon this new journey. My priority now is to see the squad play as many highly competitive games as possible and a challenging programme of games has been put together in the build-up to the European qualifying games early in the new year. Will begin to bear fruit as we attempt to build an England team to be proud of.

Futsal in Brazil Origin and history of futsal. www.fifa.com Origin of the sport Futsal is the abbreviation of the phrase Futebol de Salao (Brasilian Portuguese) or Futbol Sala (Spanish). It means soccer in a large room. The name Futsal was adopted officially in 1989 as part of the FIFA’s marketing strategy to promote the game throughout the world and develop the sport. The origin of modern Futsal has two versions. One version says that the sport was first played socially by a group of friends from Sao Paulo in Brazil at the end of 1940. In that time was so difficult to find eleven a side football available to play, the best choice was the indoor facilities to enjoy the famous ‘PELADA’ in hard court of basket and volleyball. Pelada: Football or Futsal match played for fun with friends knowing in Brazil for Pelada. The second version that the Brasilians belive most is that the Futebol de salao was invented in 1931 in Christian Boys Association of Montevideu - Uruguay by a coach named Juan Carlos Ceriari. Apart from the controversy of the origin of the sport, it is known that the Futsal was developed in Brazil. The sport began to spread from the South American continent and with it’s growing popularity came the need for a governing body and a World Championships. The International Federation for Futebol de Sala, FIFUSA, was officially founded in Brazil in 1971 and the first FIFUSA world championships were held in Sao Paulo with the hosts taking first place ahead of Paraguay and Uruguay. The Brazilians fielded stars from their 11-aside game that had been brought up playing the sport with amongst others Pele, Rivelino, Bebeto and Zico demonstrating their skills as Futsal players. The game continued to grow under FIFUSA with even more countries participating in the second world championships that took place in 1985, this time hosted in Madrid.


It was becoming clear that the sport was beginning to outgrow FIFUSA and in 1989 FIFA took over as the governing body, abbreviating Futebol de Sala to ‘Futsal’ and organising the first FIFA Futsal World Championship held in the Netherlands in the same year. Under FIFA’s control new rules were introduced aimed at improving the technical and entertainment aspects of the game for players and spectators alike. The 1992 edition of the FIFA Futsal World Championship was helded in Hong Kong. It was the second World Championship held under the eyes of football’s world governing body. Brazil were the hot favourites, having won the first World Championship in the Netherlands by beating the hosts 2-1 in 1989 and defended their title successfully in Hong Kong in 1992 with a 4-1 victory over the USA. The draw for the final competition of the 3rd FIFA Futsal World Championship was held in Barcelona. Brazil winning the first three, defeating the host Spaniards in 1996 to win their third title. Followed by Spain winning the next two, defeating Brazil in 2000, then Italy in 2004 in the first Futsal World Championship final that didn’t feature Brazil. In 2008 Brazil became the first host country to win the Championship beating Spain in a penalty shootout. The next event will be held in 2012 with regional qualifying expected to start in mid-2011. We hope that the English Lions can be part of that event and become one of the nations with a spot in the 2012 World Futsal Championship finals.

The Brazilian Style www.cbfs.com.br Futsal was developed in Brazil and Uruguay around the same time, in 1934 in Uruguay and in the 1940s in Brazil. In Brazil the sport was developed by the Young Men’s Christian Association of São Paulo due to the lack of available football fields. Basketball courts and hockey posts were used to practice the sport. In the 1950s the first state futsal federations were founded, starting with the Federação Metropolitana de Futebol de Salão (Metropolitan Futsal Federation), of Rio de Janeiro state, founded on July 28, 1954. It is currently known as Federação de Futebol de Salão do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (Rio de Janeiro State Futsal Federation), followed by the state federations of Minas Gerais, also founded in 1954, São Paulo, in 1955, Ceará, Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul and Bahia in 1956, and several others in the subsequent years.

Martic fell in love with futsal at a very young age. It was not a thunderbolt effect but, like so many others, a gradual one ruled by climatic conditions. The harsh winters of the Balkan region brought young Mico and his friends in from the cold where he discovered the wooden surface and the smaller ball better suited his own technique and temperament. “I played football first, but I quickly realised futsal was my game,” he admits. “It is technically very different, requires better concentration and is largely played with the sole of the foot.” By the time Mico was 16, he was playing at amateur level in Croatia. To get by, he studied and began developing an interest in IT, which he would later integrate into his passion for futsal. Starring first for Yugoslavia and then for Croatia, Mico was transferred to Verona in 1991. His Italian adventure has since taken him to Milan, Bergamo, Brescia and now Brugherio (Milan), where he has combined playing with working as a computer programmer. Professionalism, according to Martic, is another necessary development for the sport to flourish. Even in Italy, one of futsal’s major leagues, there are no officially recognised professionals taking part. Martic’s own example of his club helping him find work is fairly typical, but players there officially remain amateurs – albeit compensated ones. Spanish coach Javier Lozano said professionals learn to play futsal five times faster than those who are not,” he recalls. “You see the play before it happens so you have time to react. It’s like comparing the NBA to European leagues in basketball.” Croatian futsal legend Mico Martic may have retired from the international game but he is very much alive and kicking in the world of the five-a-side sport. The Croat, who captained his country in their sole FIFA World Championship appearance at Guatemala 2000, is almost as well known now for the sensational impact his website, www.futsalplanet.com , has made as for his exploits with the round ball. There are many burning issues facing the game today, but Martic firmly believes coaching to be the most fundamental that will help raise standards and increase competition in the sport. “The most important thing in futsal today is coaching,”. “Personally I’m a fan of the Spanish system. Their play is based on rhythm and is the most beautiful style in the world. Spanish coaches can teach us how to obtain better results in a more entertaining way. It is the best role model.” “Nobody plays as well as the Brazilians, but even they don’t have the tactical sense and team spirit of the Spanish. I think it was their coaching that made all the difference and helped them beat Brazil in the World Championship Final in Guatemala.” The other major development that can bring the futsal world closer together is the greater availability of information. And here Mico Martic is at the forefront of developments.

54


Mico Martic www.FutsalPlanet.com “I understood the internet could be a unique opportunity to move futsal information around the world about six years ago,” he reflects. “We are in a great position: finally we have the possibility to obtain information that can increase the quality of futsal.” Understanding the power of information, Mico set up futsalplanet.com. “There is no book in English about futsal. I’m trying to offer everything I find, hear, learn to improve the game as well as offering others the chance to do so too,” he states. “The published FIFA coaching manuals have helped me a great deal to do this.”

Athletes of Christ ???? What ?? Do religion and sport mix? Some sports people evidently think so. Players who believe in God often show it openly — some saying a prayer on the field after scoring or missing a goal, others showing off T-shirts underneath their kit bearing religious messages. Some believe that God, or spiritual forces, take sides in sporting contests. Former South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje used to hold prayer sessions for divine assistance with players before games. Evangelical Christian Jonty Rhodes once told Andrew Hudson, who was going through a lean spell with the bat: “Do your best and God will do the rest.” Last year, AC Milan player Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite (26), commonly known as Kaka, fell on his knees in prayer while revealing the slogan “I belong to Jesus” on his shirting after helping his team beat Liverpool in the Champions League. It sparked some debate among football followers across the world. The question was whether football players should confront the public with their beliefs. According to media reports, Kaka is a devout evangelical Christian who “got religion” at the age of 12. He suffered a career-threatening spine fracture, but remarkably made a full recovery. Attributing his healing to divine intervention, Kaka is a member of Athletes of Christ. (Atletas de Cristo). Kaka ( Milan A.C)

Moroka Swallows goalkeeper Greg Etafia, a Roman Catholic falls to his knees every time he takes to the field of play. He told the Mail & Guardian: “I was brought up in a Christian family and I believe in prayer. God has given me talent and I have to use my talent accordingly.” www.FutsalFever.co.uk 64


Tim Howard ( Manchester United)

Having spent the first ten years of my life with an undiagnosed case of Tourette’s syndrome—a neurological disorder characterized by physical and verbal tics, I did not experience a lot of peace. But even though my life often seemed chaotic, I knew I could always count on at least one person to provide calm and stability: my grandmother. Nana’s sense of peace was so powerful because it came from her faith in the Lord Jesus. Through her, God revealed His love for me as well. It wasn’t long before I was following in her footsteps.

I wanted the same kind of faith and peace she had, and that is exactly what Jesus gave me. That said; living with Tourette’s is not easy. But Jesus has blessed me with the gift of athleticism as well. He has done some powerful things in my life through the combination of these two gifts. Not only has He helped me earn a position with Manchester United; He also has shown me ways to use my position as a professional athlete to encourage others with Tourette’s syndrome. Today, I am blessed to be living a dream. And yet, if it all went away tomorrow, I know I would still have peace. That probably sounds crazy to most people, but that’s the kind of peace Christ gives. It is rooted in His love, and it surpasses all understanding. You can experience this same sense of love and peace, too. All you have to do is ask for it.

Why Christ?? What is the God’s Plan??

God’s Plan of Salvation Trust Jesus Christ today! Here’s what you must do: Admit you are a sinner. 1-“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23) 2-“Therefore, just as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin; and in this way death came to all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12) 3-“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10) 4-‘‘For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.’’ (Romans 6:23) That means that no men can go to Heaven with sin. The men with sin goes to Hell

Good works cannot save you?

1-“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith in Jesus; and this not from yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not by works, so that no-one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven

2-“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this, while we were still sinners. Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) 3- “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) 4-Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father (heaven) except through me.” (John 14:6) Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead. 1-“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised him Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.”(Haven) 2-“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified; and with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” (Romans 10:9,10) 3-“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) What to pray:

Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12)


If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should: Talk to God in prayer every day. “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” (Matthew 21:22) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16) “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Britain’s Got Talent Doug Reed

Doug Reed made history in August of this year by becoming the first English player to play in the world-renowned Liga Nacional de Futbal Sala (Spanish Futsal League). After captaining Manchester Futsal Club for 2 seasons in the English National League, the defender/winger was offered the opportunity to play professionally in Spain with Lanzarote Tias Yaiza in the 2nd Division. The 23yr old accepted the offer and is now fighting to gain promotion into the best futsal league in the world that features all the top players from around the globe. It has been a rapid rise for the England International who only took up the game two years ago and earned his first cap with national team just over a year ago. His success has no doubt been down to a lot of hard work. He has become a student of the game, devoting himself to this exciting sport. He is a player that has continually developed and improved his game and this is something he will need to continue if he is to succeed with this new challenge that his Spanish adventure brings. We are already hearing that certain Honor teams are keeping an eye on him with a view to possible move for the 2010-11 season. Here he talks exclusively to FutsalFever about the past, present and future. 68


1- When was your first contact with a futsal ball? I first played futsal a couple of years ago after attending a training session with Manchester Futsal Club. Initially I didn’t play regularly and continued to play 11 a side football. The more I played futsal the more I realised how much I enjoyed playing it and it was a game more suited to my abilities. Eventually I gave up 11 a side football. 2- How has futsal changed your life and how can it change people’s lifes? Futsal has given me many opportunities. I have represented the English National Team which is a tremendous honour. In addition I am now playing professionally in Spain. I will stay with this game forever now and want to coach futsal as well so I suppose it has affected my life a lot. It is an exciting game and I think lots of other people who don’t know about this game would have a lot of fun playing it.

3- We know that professional futsal is different to amateur. What else is different in a Pro Club; players, commission, etc. Can you give us some feedback over all? The main thing I have noticed is the attitude of the players. Here it is how we make our living so in training it is very competitive. For me this is much more preferable. However the best thing is that I get to have a training session every day. 4- Do you believe that futsal can be a key to developing young people in England? Should we look to create a League for children also? Yes, without doubt futsal can definitely help a young boy or girl develop both athletically and personally. Values such as teamwork, sacrifice, communication, fairplay and decision making are all crucial in futsal. I believe we shouldn’t think of futsal only as a development tool for football as it is a great sport in it is own right. I think it would be excellent to have a league for children though I feel participation is more important than competition. I strongly believe that sport is an great activity that should play an important role in everyone’s life and it has helped me immensely.   5- If one day someone invited you to join a football team at a professional level, would you consider returning to the 11-a-side game???? If the option was between futsal or football then no because this is the sport I love most. 6- Can you share with us the feeling to wear the three lion’s shirt? It is an amazing feeling to represent your country and to be selected as one of the best in the country at your sport. It is feeling that does not change however many games you play for the national team and it is one I would like to continue to have in the future.

7- We know that Neto from Spanish futsal club Interviu Madrid is your favourite player, can you tell us what are his qualities and what you can learn from him to make you a better futsal player? For me he is the complete player but I think his best qualities are his aggressiveness and tranquillity on the ball. He is as good in attack as in defence. I think it is good to watch any top level futsal player as you can use them as a reference. 8- Can you imagine yourself one day playing a important game against Brazil National Team, facing Neto, Shumi, Vinicius, Betao, Marquinho, Gabriel Dias and the legend Falcao? This would be amazing and to test myself against the best is something I desire very much. These are the players that are known all around the world and I would relish the challenge playing against them. It would also be a great moment for English futsal.   9- Are you guys looking forward to play a second match against Ireland and can you tell us about the atmosphere in that last game? I think we are all looking forward to playing against Ireland in the future. The last time we met the result was not in our favour but I feel we are more than capable to get a victory against them. Last time we played them in Ireland and being close neighbours meant the atmosphere was more intense than other games. I hope that the home nations will create national teams soon and there can be more games like this.   10- Would you like you share with us a bit about the future. What do you wish for yourself and England? For me I hope to continue to represent the national team as this is always a great experience. At club level I will continue working to improve my game and want to show that English futsal players have quality. As for England I hope we continue to develop and progress and we can reach the next level in national teams. I also hope the English National League continues to grow and will receive more attention. 71
