Premier Futsal League: 5 players who can be most influential in the final
We have finally reached the final matchday of the Premier Futsal League which has entertained the country over the past ten days. From the day of its inception, it had promised to be a pure entertainer and has not disappointed the fans. The men in blue Mumbai 5s will take on the men in Purple Kochi 5s in tonight's all-important final.
With the stage set for the stars to prove their worth, here are some of the players who could steal the show tonight. The following are the top 5 players who could have a massive impact on tonight's game:
1. Adriano Foglia
Adriano Foglia has arguably been Mumbai’s best player in the tournament. The Italian comes with a ton of experience with stints in Italy’s Serie A 5-a-side league where he was the top goalscorer on three occasions. He has also won the award of ‘Best Outfield Player’ from UEFA in 2003.
Despite looking a bit out of shape, Foglia started off the tournament in brilliant style scoring twice against Chennai. In their second game against Chennai, the Italian doubled his goal tally scoring another two goals. That wasn’t all for the Italian as he tore Kochi apart the last time they met by scoring a fantastic hat-trick.
With 7 goals, Foglia is in the race for the Golden armband and will be desperate to get on the scoresheet in the finals. His agility along with pure strength and skill has been the highlight of the tournament and he could have a major influence in the finals.
