Thriller sees Zambia into last eight

Had one of the game’s deadliest markswomen made a heartrending exit from international football’s grandest stages?

Cristiane, after scoring four times at France 2019 hobbled from the Stade Oceane turf in extra-time of a Round-of-16 showdown with the hosts. Minutes later, Amandine Henry scored the goal that ended Brazil’s campaign.

Cristiane would be 35 by the time Tokyo 2020 began. Did she still desire the Seleção? Did Swedish coach Pia Sundhage desire her at the expense of excelling youngsters?

Those questions were answered late last year. Sundhage recalled Cristiane and started her in back-to-back friendlies against Mexico. The iconic No11 responded with two goals and two stellar performances.

FIFA.com caught up with Cristiane to discuss the highs and lows of France 2019, the great impact Sundhage has made on Brazil, going for gold in Tokyo, Marta’s place in football history, Christine Sinclair’s world record and when she plans to retire.
