    Outlook 
    -------
    
    Brazil appears in its third consecutive Women's World Cup, hoping
    to fare better than its mediocre showings of ninth place in the
    previous two. 
    
    The 1998 South American champions have come far in women's soccer
    and are expected to have a much better performance this time
    around.  But how the Brazilians do within Group B remains to be 
    seen.  Brazil lost to Germany 6-1 in the 1995 World Cup in 
    Sweden. 
    
    Brazil outscored much weaker opponents 48-1 in group play at the
    1998 South American Women's soccer championships.  Like their
    male counterparts on Brazil's national team, there is an emphasis 
    on the attack.
    
    Forward Roseli has an appetite for scoring.  She tallied 15
    goals in the South American qualifying tournament.  Katia is a 
    flexible player with abilities both in the midfield and at forward.  
    She also struck for 12 goals.  Midfielder Sissi is the captain 
    and a most skillful player.  Pretina and Elane are also key parts 
    of Brazil's scheme.
