The final match of AFC Futsal Championship 2018, between Uzbekistan and Japan, will be played today at 4:30 pm.

Actually, it’s a five-a-side football sport, where only five players can perform at a single time(four outfielders and one goal-keeper), this feature makes it easy and called itself as an Indoor football tournament.

Japan has become a good team of this event, they start of this championship by winning their first match against Tajikistan with the score of 4-2 in full-time. Japan scored their all four goals, in the first half of this match and they took a massive lead over Tajikistan. Tajikistan overwhelmed this lead by hitting two goals in the first half. There were total 6 goals scored in the first half of the match, and break and halftime have to begin with 4-2.

On the other side, Uzbekistan also did a great start of this tournament, by winning their first match against the poor team of  Korea Republic. They performed well and scored thirteen goals against the Korea Republic, in the first half of the match.
