Kuwait City: Kuwait national futsal team coach Luis Fonseca Cilleros has agreed terms with Kuwait Football Association (KFA) to extend his contract which will see him leading the Gulf side in the FIFA Futsal World Cup 2012 in Thailand.

Cilleros guided Kuwait to the quarter-finals of the recently concluded AFC Futsal Championship where they succumbed 3-2 to Australia but still booked their place in November's World Cup with Thailand having opened the door to the fifth-ranked team in Dubai after already occupying one of their four qualification spots by reaching the semi-finals.

Kuwait will represent Asia in the Futsal World Cup alongside hosts Thailand, AFC Futsal Club Championship winners Japan - who defeated the Thais 6-1 in the final - third-place finishers Iran and the fourth-placed Futsalroos.Cilleros, whose contract expired immediately after Kuwaits elimination from the AFC Futsal Championship, had hinted on extension of the contract till the World Cup.

I had never been to Kuwait before and never handled national team before but once I started working with these players I found that they have immense talents so its great to lead them in the World Cup, Cilleros, who have coached seven top-flight Spanish futsal clubs had told www.the-afc.com.

Cilleros goalkeeping coach Carlos Crocna also has been contracted to continue till the World Cup.

In one of the active years in futsal, Kuwait are scheduled to organize AFC Club Futsal Championship next month.
