Maybe these shooters can teach NT defense how to keep calm under pressure

Our beloved country is participating at the 2008 Futsall World Cup in Brazil and have won their first match 4:1 against Uruguay

Quote:
Czechs check-in with win
Czech Republic got their FIFA Futsal World Cup campaign off to a flying start with a convincing 4-1 victory over Uruguay at the Maracanazinho.

From the first whistle, it was obvious that this would be a closely fought match and while Czech Republic shaded the game in terms of possession, the final score was not a true reflection of the even encounter in Rio de Janeiro.

With Uruguay switching off at the back, Roman Mares had the game's first real chance and after eight minutes it was the same player who gave his side the lead. That lasted for just nine minutes when Seba's scored from a rebounf.

Tomas Sluka made it 2-1 to Czech Republic five minutes after the re-start, but the goal appeared to galvanise Uruguay, who abandoned their counter-attacking tactics and went on the offensive. But as they poured men forward, gaps appeared at the back and Zdenek Slama took advantage of a wonderful assist by Mares to restore their two-goal cushion.

The South Americans never gave up but found Czech keeper Tomas Meller in inspired form and the final minute of an entertaining match provided even more drama when David Filinger scored from the second penalty spot and Pablo Lanza was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

So the Czech Republic is out of the tournament with two wins (Uruguay and Libya) and two losses (Spain and Iran)

Quote:
Group D: Asian promise
Through: Spain, Iran
Out: Czech Republic, Libya, Uruguay

After suffering a scare against Iran in their group opener, Spain increased in stature as the first phase progressed, establishing their credentials by keeping three successive clean sheets. Meanwhile, the Asian champions proved their 3-3 draw against the holders was no fluke, stringing together a trio of wins to claim second place. Their victims in the all-important decider were Czech Republic, who have much to look forward to in the short term. Fourth-placed Libya need to add some tactical steel to their exquisite talents, while Uruguay gained some valuable experience that ought to stand them in good stead.

Outstanding performers: Javi Rodriguez, Kike and Daniel (ESP); Vahid Shamsaee and Mohammad Taheri (IRN); Roman Mares (CZE); Mohamed Rahoma (LBY)

Stepanek captures Brisbane title


Radek Stepanek clinched the Brisbane International title after fighting back to beat Fernando Verdasco 3-6 6-3 6-4.

Third seed Verdasco looked to have the edge when he took the first set but Stepanek started to use more drop shots to upset the Spaniard's rhythm.

The move paid off as the 30-year-old eighth seed from the Czech Republic powered to his third ATP title.

"I just played a few drop shots today. When I was young I played them every second rally," said Stepanek.

"It was part of the game plan to get him out of the rhythm and to move him around the court and it worked quite well.

"I was destroying the rhythm of the opponents since I was a kid and I'm still doing it but I'm more professional in many ways and that's the biggest difference."

Stepanek has been on the professional circuit since 1996 but he said he was only just starting to reach his peak after a neck injury in 2006 stalled his career.

"I had to start work from zero," added the world number 26. "Now it's been two years and I'm starting to feel again that I'm getting to the top physically."

Third seed Marin Cilic of Croatia ended home favourite Somdev Dewarman's dreams of a fairytale first title by winning the Chennai Open 6-4 7-6 (7-3).

The 20-year-old Cilic struggled at times against the 202nd-ranked Devwarman, 23, but saved nine of 10 break points to secure his second tour title.
