Canada Soccer releases its year-end award shortlists: But where is futsal? 28 November 2016 As a media voter (the public can vote on some of the awards, as well), I’m stuck. I think some of the best male performances in Canada jerseys in 2016 came from our futsal players. But there’s no award for futsal — which, to me, is a major faux pas from Canada Soccer. If the Long Term Player Development plan calls for more on-the-ball skills, more futsal, we need to recognize the Canadian futsal specialists who have done great things in international tournaments.
