Team Chicago Academy-Cruzeiro Meet the Real Cruzeiro!
Team Chicago Academy-Cruzeiro went to Toyota Park this afternoon to meet their namesake Cruzeiro Esporte Clube from Brazil. Cruzeiro is one of the biggest and most storied teams in Brazil.
The girls had the opportunity to watch practice and then meet the players, the mascot Raposao (The Big Fox), and Head Coach Marcelo Oliviera. At 3pm tomorrow the girls will attend the Cruzeiro-Morelia game at Toyota Park where four players will walk onto the field with the Cruzeiro players during the pre-game ceremony. At halftime the entire team will get a chance to play a scrimmage on the field.
