Formiga says goodbye and Brazil debuts with a rout at the International Tournament in Manaus

Brazil’s debut in the International Tournament came with a rout by 6-1 this Thursday at Arena da Amazônia. But the most important event of the night was the farewell of midfield Formiga wearing the national team shirt. The 43-year-old took the field in the second half and even had opportunities to concede her last goal.

The Brazilian team opened the scoreboard in the first minute with Debinha. Shirt nine received a free throw and had to kick twice to beat goalkeeper Chauhan. The opponents got the tie after eight minutes, with Kalyan in a beautiful shot. Brazil continued to dominate, but only managed to regain the lead on the scoreboard after 36 minutes, with Giovana.

Ary Borges took six minutes after returning from half-time to score Brazil’s third. Kerolin at eight and Geyse at thirty minutes further extended the rout. Ary Borges scored another one in the 35th minute and closed the Brazilian party in Manaus. Formiga took the field within thirty minutes and crowned his farewell party with his national team shirt.

The next challenge for the Brazilian team at the International Tournament will be this Sunday, against Venezuela at 21:00 (GMT). India and Chile will also face off at Arena da Amazônia on Sunday at 18:00.
