Samsung Intercontinental Cup Dubai 2014 dates revealed
The beach soccer world will turn their eyes to Dubai again from the 4th-8th of November for the prestigious tournament
One of the most anticipated events of every season has been confirmed for next November. Between 4th and 8th of November, the Samsung Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup Dubai 2014 will again stop the beach soccer world, and will have all beach soccer fans treated to one of the most prestigious competitions of the yearly calendar. Dubai and Beach Soccer are ready to show the globe what is it that makes the combination of both such a delightful thing to enjoy, thanks to the excellent work and thorough support by the Dubai Sports Council.
Once again the strongest teams in each continent will face each other so thrilling action is more than guaranteed. Hosts UAE, one of the most successful teams on the Asian continent, will be pitted against some other of the world’s biggest giants: World Champions Russia, defending Intercontinental kings Iran, the Tetracampeão Brazil, Asian runner-ups Japan, African powerhouse Morocco, Europe's maestros Portugal, and CONCACAF crown owners USA.
Nothing will be easy for any team as all the squads have high expectations and lockers already filled with hardware from past victories. Iran headlines the group of teams, as they are the current holders of the Cup, having won in 2013. However, Russia is the two-time defending Euro Beach Soccer League and FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup champion and they will be excited to prove their worth once again, after losing the Intercontinental throne to Iran in 2013. The perennial beach soccer giants, Brazil, will be a formidable opponent for anyone, as Japan will look to impress under their new coach, Marcelo Mendes, and improve upon their AFC Beach Soccer Championship 2013 second place finish. Beach Soccer powerhouse, Portugal, already has an eye on the Cup, hoping to show-off, as they prepare to host the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2015. The United States will have a tough road ahead but their 1st place finish in the FBSWC CONCACAF Qualifier 2013 is just one indicator of their potential. Rounding out the eight quality selections is a very tough Morocco side.
