reach Sweden against Brazil in a shootout of women’s football finals

Sweden against Brazil 4-3 on penalties after the teams were locked and Virgin on Tuesday to reach the following extra time the final of the women’s football tournament at the Olympic Games in Rio.

Sweden, whose best previous performance at the Olympics was fourth place in 2004, the winner of the other semifinal between Germany and Canada is over now.

Lisa Dahlkvist scored the decisive penalty in the fifth attempt by Andressa Sweden, the youngest player in the Brazilian team, saw his sentence Hedvig Lindahl.

Cristiane of Brazil and Kosovare Asllani Sweden have also saved their kicks.

The result was a big disappointment for the host country, which were much higher and had the support of a raucous capacity crowd at the Maracana Stadium.

Brazil had most of the game in Sweden tried the same smash and grave tactic that the US has spent in the quarterfinals.

Brazil had 33 shots on goal, compared to Sweden six.

Brazil fans ask: What now women’s football?

Olympic Football Team Brazil women was filled with joyful attention until their elimination in the semifinals heartbreaking on Tuesday which is a key question: Has the interest, the start of something big or another false dawn?

to reach Sweden against Brazil in a shootout of women’s football finals

Brazil has no league long women’s season force, 13 of exercise in the 18-strong team, their profession abroad.

But the team from Rio Games had grab headlines and the male side of the kick-off on August 3, outshining many observers invited to ask whether this approach die with the Olympic flame and broadcasters and sponsors are finally investing.

“When we got to the Olympic final in 2004 … we thought it would take off, it would get sponsorship, would be created the league,” Carlos Alberto Parreira said Brazil’s coach and the director, to their 1994 World Cup Team Triumph the people out. “But nothing happened.”

The reason there was no interest then or since, said Parreira Reuters, has everything to do with the chaotic management of the highly indebted football clubs of Brazil.

Even the big clubs have financial difficulties, “he said.” So it is not investing enough money in women’s football. But I hope that the mentality changed gradually. ”

“The Olympic Games and the participation of women, who have always done so well, I hope that the interests of broadcasters and companies wakes, because without that you never football.What women develop you see here is that the Brazilians like women football as well. ”

“Here” was the Maracana, where a capacity crowd Brazil Sweden thwart a touchline watched 4-3 on penalties to lose after the game finished empty Overtime.

The home crowd got behind the team during the game and a carnival atmosphere, a stadium steeped, like normal clubs hosts Flamengo, Fluminense and Botafogo.

“We believe that women take seriously,” said Marcio Sousa, a fan of Flamengo on the way the game to Tuesday. “Men seem to be more interested in the European leagues, playing for Brazil.”

Some Brazilian clubs have women’s teams, but they are very poor compared to men.

There is no infrastructure for women’s football, no national league – only a long tournament three months to the end of the season – and very little investment.

The Brazilian Football Federation will pay for some players and a coach who they permitted to be held in the national team, no small feat in a country where women’s football 1941-1979 was forbidden to be unladylike.

The fans who came to encourage players like Marta, five times Player of the Year, and Cristiane, the leading scorer in Olympic history, now hope their support will be translated constantly into something more.

But history is against them, perhaps, the culture is.

“It’s all about machismo,” Fernandes said Adir, Vasco da Gama Average age of a fan who came at the Maracana to watch the game its first women.

“They think that women are not replaced at the same level. They speak only when women’s football World Cup and the Olympics come around. In Brazil, only the men’s game money and attention.”
