The death of former Brazil women’s national team coach, Oswaldo Avalrez has been announced. Avalrez died on Monday in a Sao Paulo hospital at the age of 63, having been treated for liver cancer recently.
He coached Brazil’s Samba Ladies at two Women’s World Cups, in 2015 and 2019, losing to Australia and France in the round of 16 respectively, before he was fired by the country’s football body last year.
He led the Brazilian side to winning the Women’s Copa America title in 2014 and 2018, the 2015 Pan American Games as well as finishing fourth at the 2016 Olympics.
The Brazilian Football Federation have since paid Vadāo as he was known a tribute, describing him as “a loyal professional who never fell short in his work and brought fundamental results” for the national women’s team.
