Posted 10. july 2015
A fantastic atmosphere awaited the teams in the Praia da Baia Stadium in Espinho as the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Portugal 2015 got underway. Around 3,500 fans packed into the stands and they got what they wanted – a Portuguese victory over Japan in the Group A opener. Things got better thanks to Italy’s dazzling win over Costa Rica, where the Azzurri underlined their credentials as title contenders. Next up, Japan gave hosts Portugal a real battle before succumbing 4-2, putting the former on top of Group A ahead of Argentina, who beat Senegal 4-3 on the South American country’s independence day. Last to come out smiling were Switzerland, who overcame AFC champions Oman in the day's final game.
