The Brazilian national 7-a-side football team is currently in their first training camp of the year in Águas de Lindóia.   Players at this camp include Diego Delgado Da Silva,  Erivaldo Dos Santos Camilo, Evandro De Oliveira Gomes De Souza, Fernandes Celso Vieira, Gilvano Diniz Da Silva,  Igor Romero Rocha, Jan Francisco Brito Da Costa , José Carlos Monteiro Guimarães, Marcos Dos Santos Ferreira, Ronaldo Almeida De Souza, Ubirajara Da Silva Magalhaes, Wanderson Oliveira Da Silva, and Wesley Martins De Souza.  Camp wraps up next Wednesday.



The second camp of the year is scheduled to start on February 28 and run until March 7.   Last month, the team was gathered in Argentina for a two nation training with their counterparts, which was followed by a friendly.  Later in the year, the team will participate in the 2015 World Championships, where they meet Russia, Ukraine and Iran in the group stage.   The current goal of the national is to try to improve their ranking, and be top five in the world ahead of the 2016 Summer Paralympics. They seek to improve on their fourth place finish in London when they host the Games.


On the domestic side, Associação Nacional de Desporto para Deficientes (ANDE) posted a reminder that the transfer window for 7-a-side football players in Brazil’s domestic competition closes next Saturday.
