Beach Soccer – Portugal Ready For Glory
PORTUGAL READY FOR GLORY?
Beaten finalists in 2006, Uruguay will start as slight Group C favourites and will face Senegal, runners-up in the African qualifiers, in their first match. The Uruguayans will certainly have to be at their very best to top their group.
Portugal, runners-up in 2005 and fourth in 2006, will be looking to do even better this time round. Having claimed the European league title on the back of 21 goals from top scorer Madjer, the Portuguese will be determined to claim the world crown at the third time of asking. Madjer’s game is all about skill, finishing and fairness. When he is on form, no other player in the world can thrill a crowd like Madjer. The Portuguese superstar and his team-mates will also have to be on top of their game if they are to see off the challenge of Spain, the USA and Iran.
