While, Ednaldo Rodrigues, president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), announced that a minute of silence will be observed in all the matches of the 15th round of the Brazilian Championship, which will take place next weekend, in memory of Gabriela.

The CBF, dismayed

The leader maintains that the CBF was working with the federal government and other relevant organizations to prevent “criminal and sad episodes like this from happening again.” “Football is passion and not a space for the action of criminals who infiltrate the fans to practice all kinds of violence,” Rodrigues said in the statement.

That we reflect and unite for the end of this violence. And may God comfort Gabi’s family…”.

Palmeiras and Flamengo denounce the event

“We cannot accept that a 23-year-old girl is a victim of barbarism in an environment that should be entertaining. We express our solidarity with the family of the girl from Palmeiras and demand a prompt investigation of this crime,” Palmeiras reported on social media.

For its part, Flamengo posted on Twitter that “on an occasion that should have been a purely sporting dispute, a young woman lost her life in a barbaric and unjustifiable manner that deserves to be rigorously punished.”
