The USA confirmed today in

Nassau their stunning way back to the global stage, becoming the champions of this FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2013 – CONCACAF Qualifier Bahamas and succeeding Mexico as the continental kings. A last breath hit by Nick Perera in the final against El Salvador had the Northern Americans bagging a trophy they had not got in their hands again after the 2007 edition. With the prize of being a part of the next FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2013 already secured, both teams hit the sand of Malcom’s Park stadium in Nassau with the idea of leaving the Bahamas tomorrow with the continental crown in their hands. El Salvador, who lost in the final of the last edition to Mexico, opened the score, thanks to Elmer, only to see, though, Soto’s lads turning the score round in two minutes. Before the first period was over, Agustin pulled the equalizer back for the Salvadorans. Futagaki tried to have his team ahead once again, but the Cuscatleco would not let them take the lead for too long, as Wilber immediately neutralized that advantage. It was then Frank, one of best players of the tournament, who wanted his name written on the game records, and after a brilliant move fired the 3-4 home. As minutes went by, it seemed that Frank’s goal could have closed the final, but along came Nick Perera, top scorer of the tournament, to act as the killer he is and decide the game. First, with the equalizer that sent the game to the extra time. And little afterwards, with the tournament winner hit just seconds before the end of the supplementary three minutes. Goals: 0-1: Elmer, min. 10 (1); 1-1: Valentine, min. 6 (1); 2-1: Futagaki, min. 4 (1); 2-2: Agustin, min. 0 (1); 3-2: Futagaki, min. 9 (2); 3-3: Wilber, min. 6 (2); 3-4: Frank, min. 9 (3); 4-4: Perera, min. 6 (3); 5-4: Perera, min. 0 (et) [gallery ids="988,989,990,991,992,993,994,995,996,997,998,999,1000,1001,1002,1003,1004,1005,1006,1007,1008,1009,1010,1011,1012,1013,1014,1015,1016,1017,1018,1019,1020,1021"]   source (Beahc Soccer.com)
