MULHERES GUERREIRAS DO BRASIL
THE 2019 BRASIL WOMEN’S NATIONAL TEAM
Playing soccer for Brasil carries a certain responsibility — the hopes of a nation where the sport is religion. Putting on the national jersey is tantamount to wearing the country’s flag itself. And as female athletes playing a traditionally male-dominated sport, Brasil’s women - the Mulheres Guerreiras - have not let anything stand in their way. As they take the world stage in France, they seek to inspire millions of girls back home to chase their dreams, no matter how crazy they may seem.
At home, the women will wear an exclusive version of the nation’s sacred yellow kit. The body features classic Samba Gold and introduces lucky green accents on the cuffs. The jersey is balanced by blue shorts and white socks — an undeniably Brasilian aesthetic.
The away kit features a constellation of stars that pays homage to the former female Brasil National Team members who paved the way for this year’s team. Dark blue tones with a geometric star graphic represent the night sky fading from top to bottom. It also features a modern collar and is punctuated by the same Samba Gold from the home jersey. Printed inside the shirt is the inscription “Mulheres Guerreiras do Brasil.”
Established in 1986, Brasil is the most successful women’s national team in South America. Contenders for the World title for the last two decades — coming in third place in 1999 and second place in 2007 — the team is poised to take on anyone in their path this year.
Andressa Alves: With a versatile and relentless attacking style, Andressa leads the offensive charge and is ready to show out on the world stage.
Adriana Leal da Silva: Nominated as the best player in the 2018 local league and with a Corinthians championship under her belt, Adriana is poised to take her game to yet another level in the tournament.
Andressa Cavalari Machry: Known as “Andressinha”, the crafty midfielder has an elite ability to control and determine the pace of the game, and her blend of playmaking and scoring from distance make her a constant threat.
Bia Zaneratto: The team’s top scorer in Rio 2016, left-footed striker Bia brings a dangerous blend of power and stamina against any defensive scheme.
