FIFA Futsal World Cup 2012: The Pharaohs still believe

The Pharaohs need a positive result in their match tonight in their Group E clash against the Czech Republic in the  Futsal World Cup taking place in Thailand, after losing 1-3 to Serbia in their opening match of the tournament last Saturday.

In a tight and defensive oriented affair at Bangkok’s Huamark Indoor Stadium, the Serbs were able to put three goals in the Egyptian net after a goalless first-half. However, coach Badr Khalil believes that his team deserved more from the game and is confident that they can beat the Czechs as he told “I’m still very, very confident that my team will be there in the last 16. I watched the match between Czech Republic and Kuwait, and it is my opinion that we are much stronger than both these teams. I really believe that.”

The Czechs will be going into the match high on confidence after beating Kuwait 3-2 in their first match and are second in the group behind Serbia only on goal difference.

Good luck to the Pharaohs.
