Brazil, buoyed by unwavering support from their fans throughout the tournament, remained undefeated in Group B with a perfect 12 points. They overcame Venezuela in the semifinals and repeated their success against Argentina in the grand finale, reaffirming their status as champions.


It marked Brazil's 11th continental title. The team concluded the competition with a flawless record, winning all six games, including two victories against Argentina.

"They (Argentina) were a thorn in our side; we had lost three knockout matches against them. Today, we scored and defended, just like they used to do against us. This team deserved the title. Now, we aim for the World Cup final," stated pivot Pito, referring to the upcoming global competition later on this year.



Goalkeeper Guitta, one of the team's veterans, emphasized the shift in Brazilian futsal mentality. "We had an excellent tournament; it would have been a major disappointment to leave the court without the title. It shows our evolution; we played well, and we defended well. People say Brazil only knows how to attack, but today we showed something different. Our calling card is this: attacking and defending well," he asserted.


The Copa America determined four representatives from South America for the Futsal World Championship. Alongside Brazil and Argentina, Venezuela and Paraguay secured their spots in the tournament.
