    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – Canada secured the final berth in the 2016 CONCACAF Futsal Championship (CFC) with a 5-3 win over the United States on Thursday at BN Arena.

    The Canadians captured the North American qualifying playoff series 9-7 on aggregate and will participate in the CFC for the second time. The U.S. failed to reach the finals for the first-ever time after appearing in each of the previous five editions.

    Robert Renaud (14’, 17’, 29’) netted a hat-trick for the winner, twice giving Canada one-goal leads (1-0 and 2-1).

    In the 15th minute, defender Adriano Dos Santos leveled at 1-1 for the USA, which did not score again until down four goals. Tony Donatelli (38’) and Daniel Mattos (39’) each found the back of the net in a bid to spur a late rally.

    An own-goal by the USA’s Brian Harris (22’) gave Canada a 3-1 lead and Ian Bennett (25’) increased the advantage three minutes later.

    The CONCACAF Futsal Championship will be played May 8-14, 2016, at the BN Arena in San Jose, Costa Rica. Canada will face host Costa Rica, Cuba and Curacao in Group B.
