The highly-experienced Giovenali told The Inner Sanctum site that Australia have to be on their best to beat their Asian rivals at the competition.

“It’s just trying to match the intensity, the quality, and just concentrating for 40 minutes of the game,” Giovenali said. “We can’t lapse any second. We give them half a chance, these Asian counties, they’re all professional players, they’re going to hit the target and we can’t take that risk.”

Giovenali started his Futsal career with Castle Hill United and also represents Hills United in the FNSW Men’s NPL.

Along with his elder brother Greg, Wade has been an integral part of both Dural and the Australian Futsal team for years. Greg has since left the sport.

The top four finishers at the AFC Futsal Asian Cup will qualify for the FIFA Futsal World Cup which will be held in Uzbekistan from September 14 -and October 6, 2024.
