    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – Glucosoral goalkeeper William Ramirez acknowledged that “physical training, knowing how to react and also a little luck" were keys to his title-clinching performance in the 2014 CONCACAF Futsal Club Championship final.

    The Guatemalan side ultimately captured the crown 5-4 on penalty kicks after their final against Costa Rica’s Borussia ended in a 4-4 draw.  Ramirez made saves on attempts by Kenneth Carmona and Diego Zúñiga.

    "Exiting as champion leaves me with a rewarding taste because we have been fighting many years for a tournament like this, and now it is here with us," an ecstatic Ramirez told CONCACAF.com.  "The important thing is to grow futsal in the region, that's the main thing.

    “Guatemala is at a very high level in this sport.”
