Beatriz Zaneratto João (born 17 December 1993), commonly known as Beatriz or Bia, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Korean WK League club Hyundai Red Angels and the Brazil national team. She participated at the 2011 and 2015 editions of the FIFA Women's World Cup.

Club career

Beatriz joined her local team Ferroviária at the age of 13. In 2010 she moved to play for reigning Copa Libertadores Femenina champions Santos.[4] In February 2013 Beatriz and her Vitória das Tabocas teammate Thaísinha announced that they had accepted a transfer to South Korean club Incheon Hyundai Steel Red Angels.[5]

International career

Ahead of the inaugural 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, 14-year-old Beatriz was the youngest player in Brazil's squad and was highlighted as a "player to watch" by The New Zealand Herald newspaper.[6]

She made her debut for the senior national team in May 2011, a 3–0 friendly win over Chile at Estádio Rei Pelé in Maceió.[7] Beatriz was named in Brazil's squad for the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany and participated in the 3–0 group stage win over Equatorial Guinea.

In February 2015 Beatriz's club commitments in South Korea meant she was left out of Brazil's 18-month residency programme intended to prepare the national team for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympics.[8] At the World Cup in Canada, Beatriz made substitute appearances in the final group game, a 1–0 win over Costa Rica, and the 1–0 second round defeat by Australia.
