Coach Arthur Elias played his first two games in charge of the Brazilian Women’s Team

Coach Arthur Elias called up this Thursday afternoon (1st) the 23 players from the Brazilian football team who will compete in the first edition of the Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup (North, Central American and Caribbean Football Confederation), starting February 21, in the United States. The coach called seven athletes for the first time but, unlike previous lists, he did not list strikers Marta and Cristiane. The call took place at the CBF headquarters, in Rio de Janeiro.

The new additions to Arthur Elias’ relationship are the players Amanda (Fluminense goalkeeper); Bia Menezes (São Paulo full-back); defenders Tarciane (Corinthians) and Thaís Ferreira (Tenerife); Vitória Yaya (São Paulo attacking midfielder) and Aline Gomes and Duda Santos (both Ferroviária forwards).

The first phase of the Gold Cup will bring together 12 teams, divided into three groups. The tournament will serve as preparation for the Paris Olympics – the women’s team secured a place by winning the 2022 Copa América. The competition will take place in the cities of San Diego, Carson, Los Angeles and Houston. The title fight is scheduled for March 10th.

In addition to Brazil, three other teams from the South American continent participate in the Gold Cup as guests: Colombia, Argentina and Paraguay (all semifinalists of the 2022 Copa América). Brazil is in group B, along with Colombia, Panama and the winner of Haiti x Puerto Rico, who play in the preliminary round. The latter will be Brazil’s opponent in the debut, on February 21st. Three days later, the team faces Colombia and on February 26th they face Panama. All duels in the initial phase will be played at Snapdragon Stadium, in San Diego, in the state of California.
