What you need to know

- The leading marksman in the history of the beach soccer world finals with 87 goals, Madjer failed to hit the back of the net in Portugal’s opening win over Panama.

Up next for the defending champions are the well-organised, combative Paraguay. Can the legendary forward open his account against the South Americans?

With Los Pynandi providing such tough opposition, the Portuguese will need goals from all sources, including their inspirational captain.

- Poland are running out of time to back up their surprise European title win in last year, when they stunned some of the continent’s strongest sides. Their next test could not be tougher, however, with four-time world champions Brazil providing the opposition.

Having now gone eight years without lifting the trophy, A Verdeamarela are hungry for a fifth world crown.

- Though Tahiti could not get the better of Brazil in their first match, the Tiki Toa nevertheless showed flashes of the quality that made them runners-up at Portugal 2015. With Sunday’s rivals Japan excelling in their first outing against Poland, the clash between the two promises goals and excitement aplenty.
