Brazil national team will open the FIVB Women’s Volleyball International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (August 1-4) with the match against Cameroon at 19:15 C.E.T.

 

A day before the beginning of the International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Brazil head coach José Roberto Guimarães “Zé Roberto“ selected 14 players that will take part in the competition.

Despite the fact that 3 big names returned to the “Seleção“ for tournaments in 2019 after a while, only one of them found herself in the list – the libero Suelen Pinto.

The 14-player list of Brazil:

Setters: Macris, Roberta

Opposite hitters: Tandara, Lorenne, Paula Borgo

Middle blockers: Bia, Mara, Carol, Mayany

Outside hitters: Natália, Gabi, Amanda

Liberos: Léia, Suelen

I like her. I think she has improved more than Gunes but Gunes is younger. Maybe that's why she got a 3 year contract instead of Gunes's two. Reply
