Cacau is back to head the national futsal team of Kazakhstan

45-year-old Brazilian specialist Ricardo Cámara Sobral, known in wider public by the nickname “Cacau” headed the Kazakhstan national futsal team from 2013 to 2016. Under him Kazakh team played 39 games with 25 wins, 8 draws, and 6 losses and a goal difference of 137-69.
