All the goals came in the first half, with Australia putting on a terrific exhibition of Futsal to overpower English.
Again Australia got off to a blistering start, like they did earlier in the day against Malaysia, with Greg Giovenali opening the scoring in the 1st minute. It was 2-0 three minutes later when Fernando de Moraes continued his impressive debut tournament for Australia with another goal.
Two goals in the 6th minute from Trent Flanigan and Luke Haydon had the game well in Australia-s keeping.
Giovenali scored his second in the 10th minute, only for England to strike back straight away to make it 5-1. Daniel Macor added a late goal in the first half to see the score at 6-1 at the break, which neither side was able to add to in the second half.
