LOCAL round ball whiz Daniel Cappellaro will compete against some of the biggest names in the world at an international futsal competition next month.

The University of Notre Dame student and futsal star will play for Pascoe Vale against Fitzroy FC in the upcoming Futsal Oz Live competition in Melbourne with big international names such as Brazil’s Falcao and Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa.

Cappellaro said playing alongside Falcao and Costa was an “experience that money cannot buy”.

“I had always dreamed of, but never thought it was possible, to play alongside who I believe to be one of the best footballers in the world, Douglas Costa,” he said.

“It’s great to see the sport growing, becoming more popular and having the opportunity to educate a new generation of futsal and football players.

“I hope to continue to inspire future Australian futsal players with the goal of one day representing my country in international competition.”

Futsal Oz Live is on in Melbourne on July 2.
