They say 'Failure = Success' I have yet to see it with the Womens Brazil football team. So close but so far. I hope i'm wrong.

I can't see Brazil women winning this tournament, too many physical sides for Brazil to face, with whom they have struggled with in the past. One day they will win a tournament, I hope.

Tiny little setback but Brasil's women's team has to work more on defending their backline it was atrocious
