Brazil coach: Win well deserved

Brazil coach Dorival Bueno says the win over home team Papua New Guinea was well deserved.

The Brazilians defeated PNG 9-0 in the second match for Group A of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup at the Sir John Guise Stadium, Port Moresby, on Sunday, November 13.

Bueno said after the game that the team had been working very hard for the World Cup tournament so they deserved the victory.

“We took all the opportunities that we had and scored so that’s the most important thing.

“We played with all respect for PNG like how we would play against all other opponents in this tournament,” Bueno said.

He said all the teams that are in PNG have been preparing too for this moment so it will be a tough one.

Meantime, Player of the Match Brena said the team has settled in well and adjusted to the environment and weather, which she said is very similar to Brazil but a little warmer.

“It’s my first time in PNG and I’m happy to be here.

“The way we played in the first game was the most important and if we continue to perform like this in all our matches, we’ll have a good result in this World Cup,” Brena said.

Brazil is currently leading the points ladder for Group A on three points, followed by North Korea in second place, Sweden in third place and PNG in fourth spot.

The Brazilians take on North Korea on Wednesday, November 16, at the SJG stadium in the second pool match of the tournament.
