USA - September 15, 2019 09:00US Futsal National team looking for Lithuania 2020Dusan Jakica, new head coach!by Luca Ranocchiari - Futsalplanet.com editor

Finally is official. The past weeks "whispers" were just waiting for the official confirmation by US Soccer, now there are no more secrets to hide. The Serbian trainer Dusan Jakica is the new head coach of the US Futsal National Team and will therefore start his hard job to reactivate a team which was basically inactive and abandoned since the last WC Qualifiers.

A very hard but ambitious task, in a country where the chaotic organization of the game see several different bodies setting up hundred of adult and youth leagues, featuring supposed national selections, while what should be the "official source" of the game (US Soccer) is often silent or absent.

What to expect now? For sure a basic point for US Soccer is to clarify who and how runs the game and, as a consequence for the new head coach Jakica where to select the players to be involved in the new national team project.

A tentative schedule of the team, taking into account the "painful" and discussed cancellation of the 4 nations tournament in Miami, lists 3/4 training camps in different places of the (big) country starting in the next days and ending in January, with the chance to take part in an international "trip" between some balkan countries between February and March 2020. And then, the final goal: Lithuania 2020 Qualifiers (Guatemala, May 2020 according to some info).

Will Dusan Jakica (know more on the Novi Sad coach, who recently got the UEFA B Futsal Coaching License in Serbia, click here and here) be able to make US Futsal team revive the splendor of a 1992 World Cup final one day?

Jakica will count on Pablo da Silva as assistant coach and Otto Orf training the team goalkeepers.
