Brazil vs Panama match preview

Will Brazil kick off, what they hope will be, an historic World Cup campaign with victory in Adelaide?

The Seleção are yet to win this competition, reaching the 2007 final when they were beaten by Germany.

Since then, the South American juggernauts haven’t so much as won a knockout game, ousted in the round of 16 by hosts France in 2019, paying the price for only sneaking through as a best-ranked third-place finisher.

But, led by Pia Sundhage, there is optimism that this summer will be different, with Brazil capturing a fourth successive Copa América title last July, defeating Colombia in the final.

Since, they’ve also enjoyed encouraging friendly victories over Norway, Italy, Canada, Japan and Germany, holding England to a 1-1 draw in April’s Finalissima, only beaten in the subsequent shootout at Wembley.

The Seleção’s credentials will be severely tested in five days time when they take on France but, before then, the South American champions are likely to kick off with a victory.

Panama meantime are set to make their World Cup debut, overcoming Papua New Guinea and then Paraguay in February’s inter-confederation play-offs to secure this historic qualification.

This alone is a major achievement for las Canaleras, with Ignacio Quintana’s team rank outsiders to reach the knockout stages in Group F.

So, anything other than a Brazilian victory at Hindmarsh Stadium would be a major shock.

Brazil team news

When discussing Brazil, one must always mention Marta, who will become just the fifth women to appear at six World Cups.

The others are compatriot Formiga, who’s actually featured at seven, Homare Sawa, Onome Ebi and Christine Sinclair, the latter two both taking their tally to six against each-other in Melbourne on Friday.

However, now 37 year old, Marta isn’t a guaranteed starter anymore, with Debinha Seleção’s main goal threat.

Centre-back Rafaelle Souza, who’s just swapped Arsenal for Orlando Pride, captained her country to Copa América glory 12 months ago, so will she be getting her hands on the World Cup come 20 August?


Predicted XI (4-4-2): Letícia; Antônia, Kathellen, Rafaelle, Tamires; Luana, Kerolin, Borges, Geyse; Marta, Debinha.


Panama teams news

Panama have recruited a few of dual-nationals in the last 12 months or so, including centre-back Carina Baltrip-Reyes and young striker Riley Tanner, both of whom are American born.

Their star though is Marta Cox, so could she become the first Panamanian women to score at a World Cup?


Predicted XI (4-4-2): Bailey; Jaén, Baltrip-Reyes, Vargas, Natis; González, Cox, Castillo, Batista; Tanner, Riley.
