Futsal is a team sport that one player in the team can make a huge difference in the outcome of the game.
 According to the Brazilian players in order to be that one player you must know Ginga.  Something that Falcao is a master in.

There is a mysterious Brazilian essence  to the game which is called Ginga, its hard to define it.  Its in the way the body moves, its like a dance.  By knowing Ginga you will be able to dribble fast and make quick moves with the ball. 

It all happens from the early ages of a player.  Touching different parts of the ball with different parts of your feett will give the player an advantage.  It’s very important that you use both feet.  You do not need necessarily a big field to practice.  Just a small area that you can move with the ball. 

Brazilian coaches believe in Ginga and usually one fourth of the practice sessions are always spent on teaching new technics and working on the other technics that were taught on previous sessions.  Whereas in Spain the coaches had very little practice sessions on technic, it was more about set plays and formations in the game.
