Portugal won the Final against Italy!

Tiago Petrony, Rui Coimbra, Madjer, Belchior and João 'Von' Gonçalves, beach soccer players for Sporting CP, are now World Champions for the Portuguese National Team.

After beating Senegal on the quarter-finals and Japan on the semi-finals, the Portuguese National Team, led by Márcio Narciso, won the Final against Italy, by 4-6. 

Before that, on the group stage, the Portuguese National Team had already won against Nigeria and Oman. The only game not won was against Brasil, where the game ended with a draw. The six points were enough for the Portuguese Team to pass on to the quarter finals. 

After winning in 2001 and 2015, the Portuguese National Team is World Champion for the third time.
