A mix of old a new heads from NSW in the Futsalroos training squad
Heber Carvalho, Peter Crevanni, Josh Codrington, Ivo De Jesus, Daniel Fogarty, Rhys Giovenali, Simon Keith, Shervin Keshavarz-Adeli, Dean Lockhart, Bruno Pivato and Adrian Vizzari have all been included in the squad.
Qantas Futsalroos Head Coach Steven Knight has selected a squad of 18-players for a training camp between 24- 26 January 2010.
Knight will use the camp to help select a final squad of 14-players that will then head to Indonesia for the AFC Futsal Championship ASEAN Zone qualifiers which will be held in February.
This will be Knight’s first campaign as the Head Coach of the Qantas Futsalroos after serving as Assistant Coach to Scott Gilligan at the 2008 AFC Asian Cup.
Knight is excited by the prospect and confident that the group of players that he has selected will be able to do the job
“The group that we have selected are the in-form players from the last few months and recent FFA National Futsal Championships,” said Knight
“There are also a number of talented young players in the group who will benefit from the experience of being involved in the training and may even push for selection.
“A number of overseas-based players are also under consideration so for the players who attend at this training camp it will be their only opportunity to impress before the final squad is named,” concluded Knight
The AFC Futsal Championship ASEAN Zone qualifiers will take place from 20-25 February in Jakarta with the top three teams qualifying for the AFC Futsal Championships which will be played in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, from 23-30 May.
The Qantas Futsalroos have been drawn in Group A along with Indonesia and Myanmar, while Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Philippines make up Group B.
