Brazil women’s team head coach, Pia Sundhage, has selected her 25-player squad that will represent the country at the SheBelives tournament.

The squad list was announced on Thursday as the Brazil women gear up to face the likes of Argentina, United States, Japan and Canada.

The competition is scheduled to take place in Orlando.

Sundhage made a blend of youth and experience in her selected players and already has one eye for developing the next future talent. The Swedish coach also recently renewed her contract that will see her remain with the women’s team until 2024 at least.

“We have experienced players on the list, like Formiga, Marta and Cristiane, and we also have very young players, for the future, like Ivana [Fuso] and Giovana “ said Sundhage after she was questioned on her selection.
