Giovana Queiroz: Barcelona's teen Olympian who opted for Brazil over the USWNT

Described as 'the future' of the Brazil women's national team, the 18-year-old is the second-youngest female footballer at the Games in Japan

For many aspiring female footballers, Marta is their idol.

For Giovana Queiroz, though, she has also become a team-mate and, upon receiving her first senior international call-up, a roommate.

“On this list we have Marta and Giovana Queiroz. We have a famous and experienced player, and on the other side probably the future of the team,” Pia Sundhage, Brazil’s head coach, said in October, having called up teenager Gio for the first time.
