Six unanswered goals from Italy handed the U.S. National Futsal Team a tough defeat at the FIFA Futsal World Cup from the Maracanazinho in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Mathematically there is still a chance of qualification for the next round, and the U.S. takes the court again on Saturday, Oct. 4 when they clash with Thailand. Kickoff from Rio de Janeiro is set for 9:30 a.m. ET, and the game can be seen live on ESPN360.com or followed via the MNT Blog.
