Imagine playing on the same team as Zidane. Imagine being a striker and knowing he will see your run or chip a pinpoint cross on for a header.
Imagine playing against Zizou. Attempting to contain him or even just stay with him.
This dream came true for a group of footballers when Zidane went back to his old Futsal club.
Zidane makes it look so easy – Football played with an effortless beauty, with every movement and touch memorising the opponents (and viewers!)
Marvel in this 3 minutes of magic from one of the greatest, most intelligent players of all time…
So, what are the differences between 5aside football and Futsal football?
Well what is Futsal:
- 5-a-side game
- played on flat indoor pitch
- hockey sized goals
- Size four ball, with reduced bounce
- playing to touchlines
- players free to enter the penalty area
- play the ball over head-height
- 20 minutes each half
