FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup
Brazil open Paraguay 2019 campaign with rout over Oman
23 Nov 2019
Brazil, the holders of the Beach Soccer World Cup, played like the beach soccer kings they are so often labelled in a thoroughly-convincing 8-2 win over Oman in Group D.
Mauricinho capped his 100th appearance for the national team in style by scoring a hat-trick, with a goal in each period, while Bokinha and Filipe both added braces to their names on the evening.
Oman had a couple of moments to savour, though, with Nooh Al Zadjali and Sami Al Bulushi both scoring quality goals. Catarino put the icing on the cake with an acrobatic bicycle-kick rifled into the top corner. Beach Soccer fans all over the world now look forward to their next match against current Group D leaders Portugal.
