GB lost to Colombia and Paraguay, two of the most successful nations in adult futsal, in their group but beat Switzerland, then defeated the Swiss again and France in a second group phase.

Meanwhile, Paraguay beat Colombia in the semi-final and Brazil in the final and were welcomed home by thousands of fans at the airport, as well as meeting President Mario Abdo Benitez.

Dewar, who attended Flitch Green Academy and played for Dunmow United under the coaching of Scott Forbes, has been a Colchester United Academy player since under-eights and is part of the FA of Wales national development squad, as he qualifies through his grandfather.
