Torneio Internacional de Futebol Feminino Cidade de São Paulo.

Recommended Posts

Another and it's 3 on the hour.

Cristiane needs either glasses or coordination.

I guess Veronica Perez doesn't sit out a friendly.

If you're going to foul a Brazilian might as well go to town, because they're going to go for the Oscar anyway and you'll end up wishing you did.

That field is a runners dream.

Gotta jet, if you watch any more let us know how the last bit goes 9.

The way I saw it. First goal a clear mistake by Venegas, she should have stayed in her goal. The other two were doubtful penalties favoring Brazil actresses. Cristiane got hurt, but that was her own doing falling on her shoulder. Where was Maribel?

Not sure ref, surely "a little something for your troubles." Nice touch by the Brazilians.

As I suspected the Dutch were missing 12 players, including their three best. Six injuries, one resting, one club commitments, and four on personal reasons. Their superstriker Manon Melis who was just voted Swedish league player-of-the-year wanted a rest, and their midfield is run by Anouk Hoogendijk is injured and Annemieke Kiesel-Griffioen who stayed in Germany to play for Duisburg who are in the hunt for their second European title in three years.

The girls may have changed numbers or something. Amelia Pietrangelo was #13 (the 17th year old entering in 68th min approx) and not the keeper.

Keeper was Stephanie L'Abbé

Sorry, you are right. The Spanish commentators were very confused and kept using wrong names.

^^^Yes they were confused, and had no name for certain players who came on as subs.. but then, if it weren't for the Spanish broadcast, we would have not seen the game! And of course thx to -methusela- who put us on to the link!

I read a 1-0 final score, meaning we play Brazil next and then again in the final.

Like I've said before my latin is bad, but it's possible we missed a penalty. Too bad we couldn't have seen it because it would be interesting to see as the game was close, and I wonder if Dominguez played. It would also be interesting to see at what point we played for the win.

Brazil beats the 10-men Dutch 3-2 in stoppage time (93'), which is pretty unexpected because they mounted very little in the way of attack against us. Also looks like Brazil went to a three-back system on the hour.

Reviews say 30C plus, in the first half the Dutch man-marked tightly and the Brazilians had difficulty passing, and then in the second Brazil got behind and then went at them hard. The Dutch gave up an early goal and then tied the game on a counter when the Brazilians attempted and blew the offside trap. Fifteen minutes into the second half the Dutch went up 2-1. The winning goal at the buzzer was the first national goal for the sub Gabriela.

The Brazilian coach called it a very difficult game with the Dutch able to exploit their mistakes and score. In the second half he say's he moved Érika, Formiga and both his wingers higher which resulted in more attack but also exposed them more.

Sounds like the Brazilians expected a cakewalk and the Netherlands showed up to run for 90 minutes off the ball and it almost worked. The Dutch started four different players than the Canada lineup.

Netherlands/Brazil highlights are http://www.womenssoccerunited.com/group/iiinternationaltournamentofsopauloscity - scroll down the page.

Pretty crazy goalkeeping skills to kick it off. No wonder she's the backup. Super sloppy defensive coordination by the Brazilians, two world class finishes by the Dutch, and a very lucky break for Brazil to get the win.

Brazil: Picarte, Fabiana (Daniele, 58'), Aline (captain), Renata Costa, Rosana (Vânia, 88'), Érika, Ester, Formiga, Grazielle (Gabriela, 78'), Guedes, and Marta.

CAN 1:0 MEX 12.12.2010

Canada won its third match in less than six weeks against Mexico, this time a 1:0 victory at the Torneio Internacional Cidade de São Paulo. Captain Christine Sinclair scored the lone goal of the match - her fourth goal in three matches dating back to the 2010 CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifier championship final.

Goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc posted the clean sheet - her fifth-straight clean sheet and eighth of the season. Canada remains in first place with a perfect six points in the four-country tournament. Canada's last group opponent will be Brazil, who also have six points but a weaker goal differential (Canada is +6 while Brazil is +4).

"It was a tough match because Mexico had to win," said Canadian coach Carolina Morace.

Canada will close out the group phase against Brazil while Mexico will close out against Netherlands on Wednesday. With Mexico and Netherlands eliminated from the top two spots in the standings, it will also be Canada against Brazil in the Sunday final.

Along with the Sinclair goal midway through the first half, Canada had two other big chances to score in the first 45 minutes. Before the goal, Sinclair hit a post; late in the first half, a Melissa Tancredi penalty kick was stopped by Mexican goalkeeper Erika Vanegas. Canada was awarded the penalty after Diana Matheson was fouled inside the box.

Sinclair's goal was scored in the 22nd minute, nearly half way through the first half. She put a chip ball past the goalkeeper for the 111th goal of her international career.

Canada's starting XI featured Karina LeBlanc in goal, Rhian Wilkinson, Emily Zurrer, Carmelina Moscato and Marie-Eve Nault at defence, and Kaylyn Kyle, Diana Matheson, Christina Julien, Josée Bélanger, Christine Sinclair and Melissa Tancredi from midfield to attack. Canada's three substitutions were Chelsea Stewart (for Kyle) in the 57th minute, Laura Chénard (for Julien) in the 74th minute, and Robyn Gayle (for Sinclair) in the 89th minute.

As for Mexico, it played a 4-3-3 formation with Erik Vanegas in goal. The defenders were Rubi Sandoval, Alina Garciamendez, Bianca Sierra and Luz del Rosario Saucedo; the midfielders were Lydia Rangel, Liliana Mercado and Teresa Worbis; the forwards were Sandra Mayor, Dinora Garza and Veronica Perez. Coach Leonardo Cuellar then made one substitution, bringing in Tania Morales (for Rangel) in the 66th minute.

Of note from the Canadian lineup, Melissa Tancredi made her 50th appearance with Canada's national team, thus becoming the 20th player to reach the milestone.

Canada has won eight straight matches dating back to 30 September 2010 in Toronto, ON. Today's international match was played at Estádio do Pacaembu in São Paulo, Brazil. The attendance was 7,681.
