Check it out. Australia hammer Italy 12-0 in the 1989 World Cup in Canberra.

Its a great clip showing the early days of Futsal in Australia. You may recognise some of the names of the players from the brilliant commentary. Some of the skills on show from the Aussie team are impressive.

  1. Great article and footage. Agree some good skills by the home side! Osman and Knight come to mind straight away.

    Was this just before FIFA ran the game as I see it was still a throw-in rather than a kick-in and the ball was smaller ( more futebol da salao rules). I know FIFA took control in 1989.

    I wonder if anyone has any stats/details from the OFC qualifier in Brisbane 1992. Australia winners, Vanuatu runners-up and NZ third. Any results, squads etc would be much appreciated especially NZ.
