chris, beach soccer is anew tournament so we are not the only nation learning the ropes. we've been african champions 3 or 4 times and have gone to the world cup 3 or 4 times too and possibly have got to the semis under amodu. i just think this team is wishy-washy afterall swiss is landlocked. where are their beaches?
