Márcio de Oliveira’s role as the Brazil Women’s National Team coach seems to be coming to an end following reports that Oswaldo Fumeiro Alvarez, more known as Vadão, was approached by CBF to be the new coach of the Brazilian team on a 2 year contract.

Currently, he is in charge of Ponte Preta, a team of Brazilian B Serie. The announcement of Vadão as the new coach of women’s team should be done this weekend, due to the bureaucratic’s procedures and the return of Brazilian delegation from Australia, where the team have just completed a series of friendly matches with one loss and one win in two games.
It has been reported that the CBF has approached Oswaldo Alvarez to take on the role as Brazilian National women’s team head coach to guide them and prepare them for the Olympic Games in Rio 2016.
Vadão is also seen as the ideal person to lead the way to next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. In November, the national team will face the Copa America, the qualification tournament for Canada 2015.
UPDATE – 15 APRIL 2014
The news is official, Vadão is the new Brazil WNT head coach.
Responsible for revealing players like Rivaldo, Kaka, Julio Batista, Edu Dracena, Jadson, among others, the experienced coach now has a new challenge in his career: women’s football. – “This is one of the biggest challenges of my career”. I always followed the women’s football, but I never imagined being ahead of the Women’s National Team. Despite being new to me, is certainly one of the most rewarding. The America’s Cup dispute is scheduled for September this year in Ecuador.
