Guest: Gui Costa
Brazilian native, 3-time Futsal World Cup Head Coach, MBFA Youth Academy Founder, Gui Costa shares his story and experiences with futsal growing up and playing the game at a high level amongst club soccer teammates eventually going on to perform in the Bundesliga and with the Brazilian National Team. In this episode, We address the recent USMNT abnegation from the World Cup Finals and how Costa believes American soccer can turn the ship around starting with the MLS and its policy on promotion/relegation as a means to encourage healthy competition. We also hear perspective on Futsal's growth as a sport in its own right, and how a big step towards development will be overcoming political barriers to enter the Olympics.
A big thank you to Gui for sharing his time and knowledge.
