With the EdF B1, Tournoi de Fuzhou having wrapped up its first day of play yesterday, Brazil came away a winner after defeating Russia 4 – 0. The other game of the day saw China and France draw 0 – 0. China are the Asian vice-champions, and the French did an admirable job in fending off their attacks.
Russia, Brazil and China have all qualified for the 2016 Summer Paralympics, with this competition serving as a warm up event for them. France failed to qualify through either the 2014 IBSA World Blind Football Championship or the 2015 IBSA Football 5-a-side European Championship. The first spot was claimed by Argentina and the latter two were claimed by Russia and Turkey.
All teams were back in action today.
