Futsalroos in shame game?

Australia went through to the last four of the Asian Futsal Championships last night in their 3-2 win over Kuwait.

They have now qualified for the World Cup.

But last nights game had shades of Germany Austria back in the 80's when both teams simply failed to attack ensuring a 0 -0 score and both teams qualified.

 Same last night - the Aussies winning 3-2 Kuwait knew that both teams would qualify if the score remained the same so they just passed it around in their own half for the last few minutes.

Nice work everyone. Guess I would have done the same!

Aussie Coach Steve Knight said “They (Kuwait) played a high pressure game which is typical of quality teams. With regards to the final few minutes where Kuwait kept the ball in their own half without trying to score, I understand why they did it and they played within the rules.
