Russell Goldstein helped England’s futsal team win its first piece of silverware as he starred in their four-nations tournament win at the weekend.
After playing in a couple of friendly matches against Wales last month, which saw him score in the second match – a 2-2 draw – he travelled with the squad to Edinburgh last weekend, where he helped them to their maiden win.
Beating the reigning champions Wales 3-0, a 5-1 win over Northern Ireland set up a winner-take-all clash against the hosts. And played in front of 250 spectators, Goldstein got on the scoresheet once again, netting in a 5-0 win.
Reflecting back on the tournament, and his time in the team, he said: “I’m currently playing some of my best futsal, which is why I’m enjoying playing for England right now, as well as at club level for Helvecia, the champions of England, were I play with nine England teammates.
“It’s a great experience for me winning this tournament with the team. The team is happy in the way we’re progressing, but we have to keep moving forward and climb up the FIFA rankings.”
