Kosovo pulled out all the stops to hold powerhouse Thailand to a pulsating 6-6 draw in their second game of Group A of the Continental Futsal Championship yesterday at the Show DC Hall 1 Shopping Centre in Bangkok.
The one point from today’s match still put Thailand second in Group A as Uzbekistan stayed top after their comprehensive 10-0 beating of Mozambique.
Heading into the final group game tomorrow, Thailand will need to overcome Uzbekistan or at least hold them to a draw to make the next round – and this hoping that Mozambique beat or at least hold Kosovo.
In the meantime in Group B, Iran showed that they are a class apart when they tore through Tajikistan 7-0 to stay the course to win the group.
After two matches, Egypt are currently second while Lithuania are third with both teams on the same three points.
But Egypt will have a tough game tomorrow when they face Iran while Lithuania entertain winless Tajikistan.
