Futsal: Argentina defeated Russia on penalties and will play Brazil in the World Cup semifinals

The Argentine Futsal team beat Russia on penalties on Sunday (5-4), after equalizing 1-1 in regulation time, going with this victory to the Lithuania World Cup semi-final, in which he will play against Brazil.

The team led by Matías Lucuix achieved the classification in an atypical and historical penalty shootout that featured the two goalkeepers of the squad, Nicolás Sarmiento and Lucas Farach: the first blocked the shots to the Russian captain Abramov and Chiskala, while Farach saved the final penalty against Rómulo, one of the three nationalized Brazilians that the Russian team has.

Argentina’s rival in the semifinal will be Brazil, the winner of five of the eight World Cups, which defeated Morocco 1-0 in Vilnius, in the first round. The mighty Brazilian team is the ultimate power in the discipline, but Argentina has matched the classics in recent years.

In the Qualifiers, the Argentine representative beat Brazil in the final played in Carlos Barbosa, the cradle city of the discipline. But Argentina’s last official defeat was precisely against Brazil (4-2) in April 2017, in the final of the Copa América that was played in San Juan.

Messi’s greeting

Lionel Messi celebrated the victory of the Argentine Futsal team on his Instagram account, where he published a story showing the result of the match on a television with the legend “let’s go”, which he accompanied with applause emojis and an Argentine flag.

In the reflection of the television that Messi shared on the social network, it can be seen that he followed the game of the Argentine futsal team with two of his three children and his partner, Antonela Rocuzzo.

Messi had a rapprochement with Argentine futsal in his last stay in the country, since in the preview of the last game against Bolivia for the South American Qualifiers, due to heavy rains, the team led by Lionel Scaloni trained in the “Coliseo “, the stage of discipline that has the AFA property in Ezeiza.
