South American champion will meet Croatia, Hungary and Norway-B  at the upcoming Provident Cup in Hungary, which is an essential step towards the Women’s World Championship in Serbia. The Brazilians will play against Croatia, Norway-B and the hosts from Hungary.


According to rightback Deonise Cavaleiro, playing against these teams will bring a good preview on what they are going to meet in Serbia and it will reinforce team’s aspects:

“They are three of the strongest teams in the world and two of them are going to be in Serbia. Hungary has one of the world’s best players, Anita Görbicz, and Croatia is always a difficult opponent. Our game against them was the toughest in the Olympics, and every of these factors is important for our preparation. Practicing and playing with the team is vital right now”.
