Brazilian women\'s football team sleep in hotel lobby ahead of match

SAO PAULO:
The coach of Santos women’s team criticised the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) on Tuesday after her players were forced to spend part of the night in a hotel lobby before a crucial first division game.

“This is the respect that people have for women’s football in Brazil,” said Emily Lima, as she recorded on video the players curled up on hotel sofas.

“Goodnight to everyone who’s going to sleep quietly in their own beds before working the next day.”

Lima’s club Santos said the CBF’s logistics company hired to get the women to their match in Amazonia could not arrange a direct flight from Sao Paulo to Manaus and so had the players stop off in Brasilia overnight.
