How great is futsal?
"I played futsal growing up in Brazil. In futsal, you need to think quick and play quick so it's easier for when you move to normal football."

It only seems fitting that today's great story in futsal is that the English Premier League Football club that inspired us (Wolverhampton) just promoted an English National Futsal Team player to its senior squad.
"He has great ball manipulation skills. He can draw opponents into certain areas and then just maneuver his way out of them. He would throw people off too because he is so tall but has this great agility. It catches you off guard because people are just thinking it's that old cliché, good feet for a big man, but he does have tremendous feet."
- English National Futsal Team Coach Michael Skubala

"During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was futsal. The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played futsal I felt free. If it wasn't for futsal, I wouldn't be the player I am today."
- Cristiano Ronaldo
"As a little boy in Argentina, I played futsal on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me become who I am today."
- Lionel Messi
