    Great photos Izzy 🙂

    I agree with you, they looked a lot more structured and there were fewer errors in the defence. They created lots of chances, it is a shame they conceded a penalty. I am looking forward to the rematch!

    I am really satisfaction with Brazilian match yesterday. Our team don’t looks like a mess anymore, our defense was improved with Poliana and Andressa in the right side and in the left. Bruna Benites looks solid… I only think the coach needs talk with Bagé because she commited three pk in the last three matches! OO
    We played without Marta, Erika, Cristiane and  full first half without Fabiana and we made a good game. I think play on 4-4-2 is better than the other 3-5-2. I think that Márcio de Oliveira is doing a good job and we will look better with Marta and the others players that are missing.
    Probably our team A will be: Andréia – Poliana, Bruna, Bagé, Andressa – Erika, Luana, Formiga, Marta – Fabiana, Cristiane (or Giovânia, or Thais, or Débora). What do u think guys about the match yesterday?
