Ricardinho top scores at Futsal Cup finals

Ricardinho inspired Inter to their fourth UEFA Futsal Cup final victory and ended as top scorer at the finals in Almaty, while five others shared the honour for the season.

Ricardinho inspired Inter to their fourth UEFA Futsal Cup final victory and ended as top scorer in the finals in Almaty.

Portuguese winger Ricardinho, who played in his fourth final having first appeared in 2004 for Benfica, was man of the match for Inter against both Kairat Almaty in the semis and Sporting CP in the final, and scored twice in both matches. It took him into a select band of players with 40 or more career UEFA Futsal Cup goals.

Ricardinho (Inter FS) 4
Cabreúva (Kairat Almaty) 2
Mario Rivillos (Inter FS) 2

Among the five players who top-scored for the season on nine goals were two from Brezje Maribor, Alen Fetić (also joint top in 2012/13 with Litija) and Denis Totošković, with the duo helping the debutants progress from the preliminary round to the elite round. Both hope to feature for UEFA Futsal EURO 2018 hosts Slovenia early next year in Ljubljana.
