The Brazilian women’s team will face India this Thursday, at 10 pm (GMT), at Arena da Amazônia, for the opening of the International Women’s Football Tournament, which also includes teams from Venezuela and Chile.

And departure will have a special moment. After 233 matches, including seven Olympics and seven World Championships, defensive midfielder Formiga, 43, makes her official farewell to the Brazilian women’s team. A living legend of women’s football, the player received messages from some personalities, such as King Pelé, Queen Marta, Megan Rapinoe, captains Cafu, Marquinhos, goalkeeper Alisson and former teammate Sissi. See the messages below

Marta, who was called up for the International Women’s Football Tournament, but was unable to make it to that first game, highlighted in the video that she was thrilled to talk about Formiga and highlighted the importance of the player for women’s football.

So Formiga didn’t skip any step. If there’s anyone who really knows the entire trajectory of women’s football until today, it’s Formiga. And it’s an example of perseverance, dedication. A lifetime dedicated to a sport. Most loved sport in the world. And that’s how I see her. One of the most loved people in the world. And we can only be grateful for having had the opportunity to share the field, the concentration. To have her with us all this time. And if women’s football is on a different level, quite different from what it was at the beginning, Formiga has a lot of that, having contributed to make this happen. So thank you, For. Here’s your shirt and I’ll keep it with great care. Thanks for everything, you are wonderful. Miga, I love you!”

— Marta, forward of the Brazilian team
