GIOANIA - "It was a very difficult match. The opponents were very strong, but we had control of the game and came out ahead", said the captain of the Bolivian women’s team, Virginia Ballesteros, after winning with 9-1 against Kazakhstan. The game was part of the group stage of the 15th World University Futsal Championship and was held on the afternoon of Thursday (7), in Goiânia Arena Gym, in Goiânia.


If in the first matches of the World Unviersity Championship, the Brazilian women's team managed to win in rout, and easily, the night of Thursday (7) was different! The selection of New Zealand came with a technical and a strong team. Despite the score of 13-2 between Brazil and New Zealand, the first half was tight and the victory did not seem so sure.

In a tough match, the women's team of Russia beat Mexico by 2-0, in the afternoon of 7 July. With fast and accurate moves, the Russian girls defeated the Mexican team, which had come from a draw against the Portuguese selection (2-2).


The women's team of Colombia lost for the fourth time in a row this Thursday, and it is out of the title fight at this 15th World University Futsal Championship. The 4-0 loss against Argentina ended with the chances of the Colombian to dispute for the first places of the championship. They just needed a draw in the game with Argentina, but didn’t manage.
