Victor Vito is an All Black in waiting and will be in the mix for the All Blacks end of year tour and the 2011 world cup, but today he showed he could also be a Futsal Player of note when he joined in the NZ Maori Futsal training.
Vito, at 6’3″ and at 107kg send shivers down the spine of a rugby opponent when confronted by him, the same is not lost on the Futsal pitch. He is quick, very quick for such a big guy and has a deft touch, as he showed with some flicks, touches and dummies. He scored a hatful of goals and showed his left foot is as dangerous as bruising runs.
It was great to see a star such as Victor turn up and have a run at Futsal and he joins the likes of Shane Bond (cricket), Julie Seymour (netball), Geoff Ellot (cricket), Brendan Laney (rugby) and Australian League star Sam Thaiday, who have turned out for Vikings Futsal.
