The Falcons advance to World Cup semis

I've got to admit I had no idea about them, but I read this news today and I thought I'd share it with you.

The Falcons (Los Halcones), the Argentina football national team for visually impaired athletes, have advanced to the semifinals of the world championships by defeating England 5-3 in a match played today at the Centro Nacional de Alto Rendimiento Deportivo (C.E.N.A.R.D) of Buenos Aires.

With goals from David BASILE (2), Franco GONZALEZ (2) and Franco VILLALBA (who has 8 goals in the tournament and is the top-scorer), Argentina secured first place in Group A by winning all their three matches.

England and Ireland have 3 points (only Ireland have played their 3 matches and England will meet Spain next). The Spanish are rock bottom with no points.

Argentina will play on Saturday with the second-placed team from Group B. Belarus have secured their place in the semifinals with a perfect record of 9 points and Ukraine look set to be Argentina's rivals after getting 6 points in their first 2 matches. Russia and Italy have 3 points, while France completes Group B with no points.
