n.— «Short for futbol sala—loosely translated as indoor soccer—futsal is played in soccer-crazed countries all over the world. It is hailed as a teaching tool that develops players’ technical and tactical abilities by forcing them to maneuver and make decisions in confined space.» —“Turning soccer inside out” by Christopher L. Gasper in Middleton, Mass. Boston Globe Dec. 12, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
