Laughing all the way: Al Joker team celebrate their final victory.

Al Joker claimed the futsal title in the Nad Al Sheba (NAS) Ramadan tournament after defeating Al Habtoor 3-1 in a thrilling final.

With Real Madrid legend Roberto Carlos in attendance, Spain’s Miguel Sayago Marti stole the show by scoring a brace, while his teammate Edelson Robson Dos Santos was also on the scoresheet.

After playing two games in the past two days, it was no surprise that both teams looked tired. But it was Joker who looked sharper as they threatened on the counter-attacks.

Dos Santos opened the proceedings with a well-taken goal for Joker early in the first half but Habtoor found their equaliser through Leonardo Mendonca Da Rocha.

Both sides were evenly balanced but in the 19th minute, Marti gave Joker the advantage when he volleyed home from an acute angle shortly before half-time.

After the break, Joker continued to press forward and they were finally rewarded for their persistence when Marti tapped home after being put through by Marcenio Ribeiro Da Silva.

Meanwhile, YLS-1 clinched third place after a 7-3 thrashing over Fohood Jumeirah.

Gelson Saiotti Junior was in fine form, scoring a hat-trick to top the goals tally charts with 19 strikes.
