Formiga swung after the Olympic Games of 2016 as international. She stopped with 160 international matches behind her name and two records: she is the only football player six times participated in the olympic tournament. Also did it six times a world CHAMPIONSHIP for women, but that record she shares with the Japanese Homare Sawa.

Formiga, who plays at Paris Saint-Germain, came the beginning of this year back on its decision and asked Vadão or she was allowed to train with the Brazilian selection. The coach rewarded her efforts with a place in the team for the South American championship.
