2008 CONCACAF Futasl Championship Draw Complete  
  • U.S. to face Costa Rica, Panama, and Haiti in Group B from June 3-8 in Guatemala
     
  • Top Three Teams Qualify for 2008 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Brazil in Fall 2008
     
  • CHICAGO (April 23, 2008) - Earlier this week the U.S. National Futsal Team was drawn into Group B of the 2008 CONCACAF Futsal Championship along with Costa Rica, Panama and Haiti. The tournament will take place June 3-8 at the Domo Polideportivo in Guatemala City, Guatemala. The top three teams will represent CONCACAF at the 2008 FIFA Fustal World Cup in Brazil from Sept. 30 until Oct. 19.

    In 2004, the United States won the CONCACAF Futsal Championship tournament by compiling a 3-0-2 record that included a 4-0 semifinal victory over host Costa Rica. As a result, the team, lead by head coach Keith Tozer, earned an automatic berth to the 2004 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Chinese Taipei where they advanced to the second round. The United States also won the inaugural CONCACAF Championship in 1996.

    The U.S. National Futsal Team finished in the top three at the first two FIFA Futsal World Cups in 1989 and 1992, and the team's second place finish in Hong Kong in 1992 is its best ever result.

    The 2008 CONCACAF Futsal Championship marks the first time in 12 years that the event has returned to Guatemala, after the last two editions were held in Costa Rica. In addition to the U.S. and its opponents in Group B, Cuba, Mexico, and Trinidad & Tobago join hosts Guatemala in the other half of the draw (Group A).

    U.S. Finishes Fifth at Pan American Games, Tops Cuba in Penalties in Final Game Print
    US National Futsal Team
    RIO DE JANIERO, Brazil (July 28, 2007) – U.S. goalkeeper Brett Philips saved Isven Roman’s effort in the penalty-kick shootout as the U.S. clinched fifth place at the 2007 Pan American games 5-4 on a penalty kick shootout after tying 2-2 in regulation.
     
    John Ball and Troy Dusosky scored in the first half for the U.S., while Yampier Rodriguez and Eduardo Morales struck for Cuba. The teams played a scoreless second half that saw U.S. midfielder Denison Cabral sent off in the 39th minute. Despite playing down a man, the U.S. held on for the extra session forcing the match to penalties.

    Cuba shot first, and Roman’s attempt was saved by Phillips, the U.S. captain during the match. Patrick Morris, Ball, Don D’Ambra, Joe Hammes and Troy Dusosky converted five consecutive penalty kicks as the U.S held on to win 5-4.

    Brazil took home the gold medal with a 4-1 victory vs. Argentina, while Paraguay scored an overtime winner to take the bronze against Costa Rica.
