South American champions Brazil will look to win their first Women’s World Cup this summer.
Pia Sundhage’s Canarinhas won the Copa America Femenina last year after beating Colombia 1-0 in the final at the Estadio Alfonso Lopez in Bucaramanga, securing the nation a record eighth continental title in the process.
They now venture down under looking to replicate their Colombian exploits and bounce back from a recent defeat to England in the 2023 Women’s Finalissima.

Who could Brazil meet in the knockout rounds?
If Brazil top a difficult-looking Group F that also includes France, then they will face the runners-up of Group H, which contains Germany, Morocco, Colombia and South Korea. Win that and it’s the winners of Group B or the runners-up of Group D in the quarter-finals. From there, they can expect to face England in the semi-finals, or Germany if they win Group H and bypass the quarters. Then, of course, you’re looking at the reigning and record champions United States in the final.
|Route as Group F winners||Potential Opponent|
|Round of 16||Colombia|
If Brazil were to win finish as runners-up, they’d will face the winners of Group H. After that, it’s either the Group D winners or the runners-up of Group B, where England and Canada are likely to be in the mix.
From then on it will most likely be France in the semi-final and then USWNT in the final.

Brazil players to watch at this year’s Women’s World Cup
Brazil World Cup Golden Boot contender – Andressa Alves
Marta is, of course, Brazil’s all-time top goalscorer, but just coming back from an ACL injury and now being 37 years old, it remains to be seen whether the Selecao legend can rekindle the flames of her once prolific self — who remembers her seven goals at the 2007 World Cup? In that regard, Andressa Alves could be Brazil’s most lethal force up front. She finished fifth in the 2022/23 Serie A scoring charts as Roma won the league — finishing on 12 goals, just one below team-mate and Roma’s top scorer Valentina Giacinti — and will be hoping to carry that form into the World Cup.
Brazil player to watch – Marta
However, Marta is still the pre-eminent Brazil star to keep an eye on. She embodies the panache, flair and silk of Samba football and once elicited men’s World Cup winner Gilberto Silva to remark: “It’s impossible not to admire Marta. She is inspiring all of us in Brazil and people around the world”. This will be her sixth and final World Cup, and what a career it has been.
Brazil emerging player to look out for – Angelina
Fans will have been looking forward to watching Nycole at this World Cup but the forward had to pull out on the eve of the tournament due to an ankle sprain, being replaced by Angelina. The OL Reign midfielder is an interesting prospect, also 23 years old but she hasn’t played for her club yet this season, who will make her World Cup debut this summer. Angelina has been training with the Brazil squad and has been been tried in a couple of positions by Pia Sundhage, including in defence – a good utility option?
Brazil tactical analysis & formation at the World Cup
Pia Sundhage tends to line up with a back-three, utilising overlapping wing-backs, typically Tamires and Antonia — Ary Borges has also been utilised as a No. 2 at times. However, so far at the World Cup it’s been a back four, with Ary Borges playing slightly further forward. Kathellen has been the one to drop out of the Brazilian defence with Rafaelle and Lauren the centre-back pairing, while Kerolin, Luana and Leal complete the midfield four alongside Ary. Up front Debinha has been the started, first joined by Beatriz and then Geyse.
