Christian paz - A clear leader who contages that energy to his teamates
Ecuador with 5 players played against a strong team which is Cape peru. Cape Peru started an amazing game passing the ball around the court getting Ecuadorians tired and without coordination and then started scoring goals. Eduardo Wissar put 4 goals in the net for his team.
Pinotti with his clean game assisted a lot of their goals and show us his Joga bonito game which is what the fans like to see.
Something to admire is how Ecuador Christian paz never let go on the game and plays each ball like a final. That makes his team step up in the game and never get down, but Cape Peru had a lot more beating Ecuador 7-4

Felipe Soares skilful Brazilian midfielder of Atletico Peru has been in a very good level in the last two games we have seen, was the one who put the spark to get out of the hole. Setting goals when the team needed it most mostly in the emotion. When trying to match the game Atletico Peru's goalkeeper Fernando Rodriguez was sent off for two yellow, both to stop a ball out of area. "Juancho" Tarazona had to dress up and try to save the team already losing 4x2.
Ecuador fell and ended up yielding a game against a team that knew how to stand.

What a game! was the repetitive phrase after watching the Naples Futsal Premier A last Sunday.

They started a nice parade where all the teams walked out with their corresponded country flag presenting the US flag at the beginning and then the Ecuadorian and Peruvian flag. Then follow by the National Anthem of the United States of America , Ecuador and Peruvian.
Atletico Peru surprised Ecuador where the majority of the game were on top by 4 goals and this will make everyone think that the Peruvians will stay with the championship.
The Ecuadorians leaded by their captain Christian Paz tried to end the game as soon as possible getting away from the Peruvians with a score of 4 goals ahead most of the time. Atletico Peru players started getting frustrated in the game since their plays will not end in the goal. Erick Nunez got a red card on the game by fouling Christian Paz and this affected his team a lot since they did not have a goalie anymore. Tarazona went in the goal to keep he team up and supported. Then another red card came when Gonzalo Torres (Atletico Peru) and Juan Velasquez (Ecuador) started pushing each other generating the game to stop until both players were out. The Peruvians were destroyed by loosing their goalie and one of their best defenders. The game was almost over since there was only 4 minutes left and a lot of Peruvian Fans were feeling already, but the Brazilians Mayrink and others tied the game showing that they are not an easy team to beat. They were 15-15 in the score where both teams couldnt give much more since they were tired. Ecuador took advantage of this and got another championship for their records.
