    CONCACAF teams defeat Spanish futsal clubs

    Costa Rica and Mexico each defeated host Spanish sides Carnicer Torrejón FS and Navagalamella FS, respectively, on Monday, during their final preparations for the 2012 FIFA Futsal World Cup.

    After trailing 2-0 early, defending CONCACAF champion Costa Rica got two goals from Luis Alejandro Paniagua and one each by Erick Brenes and Diego Andres Zuñiga for a 5-3 come-from-behind win against second-division side Carnicer Torrejón at the Torrejón de Ardoz's Pabellón Municipal Jorge Garbajosa.

    The Ticos will meet Spain -- two-time Futsal World Cup winners -- on Wednesday in a friendly at Madrid's Pabellón Municipal de Arganda del Rey. In their only previous meeting, the visiting Spanish came out on top, 7-0, in a friendly in San José prior to the start of the 2000 FIFA Futsal World Cup.

    Costa Rica ends its Spanish tour in Segovia on Thursday against Caja Segovia FS.

    Mexico remains unbeaten after three games in Spain thanks to a 9-6 triumph over host Navagalamella FS at the Pabellón La Solana. The Tricolores were lifted to victory by a three-goal performance from Carlos Alberto Ramirez Vasquez. Gustavo Rosales netted twice, while Francisco Cati, Miguel Angel Limon, Angel David Rodriguez and Jorge Rodriguez contributed a goal each.

    Coach Ramon Raya's team is still to face Escuela Javier Limones FS (October 23) and Brihuega FS (October 24).
