After fruitful days of training at Granja Comary, coach Arthur Elias issued a new call-up for the Brazilian women’s team this Monday. This time for two friendly matches against Canada, in which the coach, replacing Pia Sundhage, will observe how the team will behave with its technical and tactical changes. The experienced Marta and Cristiane were called among the 24 called.

Compared to the first list, the absences are the goalkeeper Kemelli, the winger Katiúscia and the attacker Jheniffer, all from Corinthians, as well as the attackers Amanda, from Palmeiras, Nycolle, from Benfica and Eudimilla, from Ferroviária and the midfielders from land Brena, of Santos, and Ana Vitória. , from PSG. Lauren (Kansas City) and Gabi Nunes (Levante) are the newcomers.

The coach explained the call for new athletes as an option for the team to become more lethal up front and well protected at the back. “Gabi Nunes is a scorer, a zone player, and the option for Lauren is to have a stronger player in the zone,” he said. “Now is the opportunity for Gabi Nunes to show all her quality.”

A highlight for Ferroviária at the Brasileirão, but apart from the final against Corinthians, the young Aline Gomes will move on to improvement and development in the under-17 team so as not to miss steps in her career.

“Aline Gomes is very young, things have happened quickly and we have to be a little careful. I spoke to her, it was planned. But she did not start at Ferroviária and will follow the process in the youth category .We opted for opportunities for others at the moment,” explained Arthur Elias, who spoke with the player.

Working towards the 2024 Paris Olympics, the coach revealed that there were several players under observation, some of whom were not yet called up. “We have a group of 45 players under observation to see the 18 or 22 who will go to the Olympic Games,” he declared, happy with the first contact.

“I identified a team that has well assimilated the ideas of attacking play, the occupation of space, how to evaluate the opponent and how to position themselves and have dynamics on the pitch. I expect a Brazil with more of ball possession, but effective possession and creation. chances, scoring goals. Now it’s time to test them in an international match.”

The team performs on October 23. The friendly matches against Canada will take place on the 28th, in Montreal, and the 31st, the location being still undefined. “It’s a challenge as it will be against the major world powers,” said the coach. “Canada is experienced, but did not have a good result in the World Cup and is also looking to get back on its feet for the Olympics. There are few FIFA dates, but it’s good to start against a big rival, who “We will need to know how to position ourselves defensively, paying attention to dead balls and counter-attacks,” he continued .

“I was very satisfied. I want to look to the future and this is a team that will take a lot from our group in these two games, a rich experience.”

Arthur Elias also explained what he expects at the start of his journey with the national team. “The most important thing is to develop the game model, to have a balanced team at all times of the game. The system serves as an ally to distribute the players in the best possible way, to make the game easier for them, so that they feel comfortable and confident.” (Estadão Conteudo)
