What is there to say about one of the best futsal nations in the world? Lithuania will be their ninth consecutive FIFA Futsal World Cup, meaning they have been on them all. In 2000 and 2004, Spain was the crowned champion of the world. 17 years have passed since then and Spain definitely wants to bring this trophy back to their halls. The last time around, Spain got knocked out in the quarter-finals by Russia and we can't wait to see how will the Spanish respond in Lithuania.
