I'm not talking of Pro or anything near, but this type of football is the typical way is played in Argentina, you arm two teams at least, rent an hour and a half, or one hour a pitch, and you have lots of fun...then are also Ligas, Tournaments.
Usually when it becomes regular, the teams began to be pretty the same always and you bet let's say the beers, do it is lot's of fun, not 11 man football, but easier to play more regularly....and advice never count the goals like 30 to 80, just keppe counting like: 2 up, tie, you 2 one up, is easier to keep the counting between friends, and yeap some goals can be stole, part of the game....

It happened to me alot that you start with another 9 friends and three months laters you are playing with 9 persons you barely know...

Fangio, i used to play indoor in a competition about 4 years ago and we had a team called Argentina! We were all Argentine except one who was from Uruguay. And we all wore Argentina tops. And we had to play this macedonian team, and we only had 3 players...and they kept saying..."dont cry for me argentina". Anyway we played in defence the whole time and just kicked the ball away to their half...then later on when the rest of the players came we ended up to win! I remember i was very passionate that game, its was a national duty to win!

You mean the futsal type of game? I do play it.

If you go in goal, keep in mind that it is quite different from outdoor Goalkeeping. An indoor GK should be a good player as well, for the sake of having an extra man over and because you can react quicker because you have an idea what the opposing player is going to do.

Plus I can't help myself and pull every ten seconds a Loco gatti or Higuita move, here in Argentina are few that wants to be the goalie, so the usuall thing is to turn after every goal receive, and esier way to receive it is playing standing in the middle of the pitch while being the keeper..jejjejeje, well many times you will have to stay for another goal because your mates determinate that you have "let them make the goal to leave the keeper role"..which is certain in a an 80% of cases....

It has more rythim, but playing in high rythim a normall game is much more exhausting and demanding, the thing is that between friend you can even change air sitting in the grass, while your friends want to kill you, while in indoor, they literally will run over you the nest second, little space, and the constant change of attacks is hard, but after a month playing, you will accostume, the thing is to play regular, and btw if some of you are pro in 11 game, is not very good, the kees can be ruined easily, because of the floor.

I started playing indoor football three weeks ago We're in a local league, we play every saturday evening So far the score is two wins and one loss. Considering the fact we've never played together and all the other teams did, it's not a bad score Our last game was this saturday, we beat the #1 5-4, we scored the 5-4 2 min before the final whistle I scored two and assisted one

I picked up a few knocks though, some dude hit me in the thigh with his knee which hurts like hell and I fell down badly after I was assaulted from behind while trying to controll a ball on the chest
