Portugal beats Japan and gets closer to conquer Mundialito

The Portuguese beach soccer team today scored their second victory in the 23rd edition of Mundialito, which takes place in Nazaré, by beating Japan 4-2, and was about to win the tournament.

After their 7-1 win over Senegal in their debut, Mário Narciso’s side struggled to make it more difficult in the second round duel, with the Japanese coming to the end of the first period with a goal from Masanori Okuyama.

In the resumption of the match, Jordan Santos equalized, but Ozu Moreira put Japan back ahead, before the Portuguese ‘revolution’, which happened in the second period.

Belchior, Madjer and Von were the protagonists of the turnaround and left Portugal just one point away from winning the title as Spain, the opponents of the last matchday, were surprised and beaten by Senegal (3-2).

The national team has six points, while Spain and Senegal have three. Japan has zero and no longer has any chance of reaching the trophy.

Portugal-Spain are scheduled for Thursday at 18:30.
