Brazil beat England in blind football semis
Sunday 22 August 2010
England lost 5-1 to Brazil yesterday in the semi-finals of the World Blind Football Championship in Hereford.
The five-man squad was coached by ex-Hereford player David Larkin, who said it was a "great performance" from his players, who "came across a fantastic Brazilian side". Blind football uses a smaller than usual pitch with a ball that rattles to allow the players to locate it. England will play China for third place, while Brazil meet Spain in today's final.
