It is beautiful. Thanks for the support, as usual. Fans in Brasil and back home have been amazing. No, we didn’t reach the whole way and we weren’t able to win for Marta but we are still proud of our performance and thankful for the experience. Aim for the stars and end up in the tree tops. We won a silver and we are proud!
