Knight will be using the match as the last major hit-out before naming his final squad that will compete at next month’s FIFA Futsal World Cup 2012 in Thailand.

“This is a very good opportunity for us to play some quality opposition in the lead-up to next month’s tournament,” said Knight.

“The final squad for the FIFA Futsal World Cup will be selected based on how some players perform in this match and will be the last chance for players to show that they deserve to make the cut.

“So far I am very happy with our preparations to date and after we name the squad and leave for Thailand, we’ll be looking for another couple of matches to tune us up for the start of the tournament,” concluded Knight.

The Qantas Futsalroos have been drawn in Group D of the FIFA Futsal World Cup Thailand 2012 along with Argentina, Mexico and Italy (see attachment for match schedule).
