STORY HEADLINE: “FIFO” SCORES ALL FOUR GOALS AS PORTUGAL CLAIM WOMEN’S FUTSAL GOLD WITH EMPHATIC VICTORY OVER JAPAN AT YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES BUENOS AIRES 2018

STORY SCRIPT:

Portugal claimed women’s Futsal gold at Buenos Aires 2018 with an emphatic 4-1 win over Japan.

The match was a repeat of the Group D meeting that Portugal won 2-0 on Saturday, but Japan found themselves a goal down after just eight seconds following a stunning strike from Ana Sofia Goncalves, known as ‘Fifo’.

Fifo notched six goals in the semi-final and was on the goal hunt once again, completing a first half hat-trick with two further strikes to make it 3-0 at the break.

After the restart the unplayable Fifo made it 4-0 less than two minutes into second half, before Yikako Yamawaka immediately responded. However, it only proved to act as a consolation as Japan couldn’t further reduce the deficit to hand Portugal gold.

In the bronze medal match, Spain and Bolivia played out a rematch of the group stage encounter which the Spanish once again dominated to finish up 11-0 winners and claim the final podium spot.
