Brazil played their first game on 22 July 1986 against the United States, losing 2–1.[2]

The team finished the 1999 World Cup in third place and the 2007 in second, losing to Germany in the final, 2–0. Brazil won the silver medal twice in the Olympic Games, in 2004 and 2008, after getting fourth place in the two previous editions.

Brazil is the most successful women's national team in South America, having won the first four editions of the Copa América championship. Since 1999 they have been contenders for the World title. In 1998 and 1999, the team was the runner-up of the Women's U.S. Cup.

In 2017, the Brazilian Football Confederation's decision to fire head coach Emily Lima sparked protest among the team's players. The dispute evolved into an argument for greater wages and more respect and recognition for the country's female football players. As a result, players such as Cristiane, Rosana, and Francielle announced their retirement from international football, hoping that this decision might make a difference in the years to come.[3][4]

HistoryEdit

Although today the Brazilian Women’s National Team is one of the best in the world, it was not that long ago that women were not even allowed to watch a game. Starting in 1941, women were not allowed to play or even watch soccer. The game was only for men, and those who would not perform well were even called feminine at times. Throughout the time of the ban, women were observed playing quite frequently forcing the CND to take charge and reissue bans that were not working. This ban would not be lifted until the early 1980s when the CND finally had no choice but to do so. Fan bases for the women’s team had begun to root themselves in the fabric of history and with the support of the general public the women’s game led a rise in feminism that swept across the country.[5] Today the National team has won the Copa America 7 times and has made it to the world cup finals where they were beaten by Germany. Perhaps the most impressive statistic that even though the team played its first official match ever in 1986 only 5 years later they won their first title in Copa America and only 9 years after that they were challenging the world's best.
