Defender, Cierre, or Fixo

"If you don’t concede any goals you’ll win more games than you lose."

It's never easy playing as a defender in futsal, the speed of the game evolved so rapidly that you have only a few seconds to react, therefore in order to be a good and effective defender you have to choose the correct decisions in a short period of time.

As a defender, many will think you have to be strong, tall and physically built, but not in futsal. The main objective being a defender is to prevent opponent from scoring, or in other words "get rid of the ball!!!".

Important Facts:
:- Block shots
:- Stand up when facing ur opponent, don't commit yourself

Sometimes being a defender is not about defending, in futsal your pretty much a Defensive Midfielder or a deep-lying playmaker . The players that you have to watch are Lassana Diarra, Paul Scholes and Xabi Alonso. Being able to distribute the ball well and open space for you and your team is your second objective.

Important Facts:
:- Read the game
:- Try to open space using one two's
:- Find space (spread out)
:- Go for runs only when there's space and be sure that someone is covering you

Ways to imrpove your play:
:- First touch must be good
:- One touch football
:- Look up
:- Should be thinkin constantly who to pass to before the ball arrives
:- Read the game
