Taiwan are hosting top-ranked teams in the Chinese Taipei Football Association (CTFA) U20 Futsal Invitation tournament at the Taoyuan Arena in the run-up to the Asian Football Confederation U20 Futsal Championship in June.
Japan are to take on Indonesia in the opener today at 3pm, followed by Taiwan facing Iran at 7pm.
The competition will serve as a warm-up for the men’s national squad, who in December last year topped Group B in qualifying for the regional championship by defeating Mongolia 3-1 and trouncing China 7-3.
The four teams are among 12 sides who are to compete in the finals, scheduled for June 14 to 23 in Tabriz, Iran. [FULL STORY]
