The Czech Republic futsal team qualified for their fourth FIFA Futsal World Cup. They qualified to Lithuania after tense playoff qualifiers against Croatia that were only resolved after a penalty shoot-out. Unfortunately, Tomáš Neumann's troops failed to qualify to the Futsal Euro afterward, which means that this Futsal World Cup will be the major test of this Czech futsal generation. Czech futsal is in the expansion so Michal Holý and his teammates are one of the teams to keep a close eye on this tournament!
