Goals galore on historic day

The opening day of the Women’s Youth Olympic Futsal Tournament Buenos Aires 2018 was a ground-breaking one, as the discipline made its debut as an Olympic sport and the first ever FIFA women’s futsal competition got under way.

Held at two venues in the Argentinian capital, the day’s four games attracted large crowds, who were treated to plenty of goals as pre-match favourites Spain, Cameroon, Thailand and Portugal all recorded big wins.

In Sunday’s opening match at the CeNARD, Cameroon’s Colette Ndzana and Linda Tchomte both helped themselves to hat-tricks against FIFA tournament newcomers Dominican Republic.

Over at the Futsal Main Stadium, gold medal contenders Spain put in a solid display against an enterprising Bolivia side that rewarded their numerous supporters with a battling display. Noelia de las Heras starred with four goals for the Spaniards.
