Following the recent conviction of Daniel Alves and Robinho for sexual crimes, some players from the Brazilian national football team have made a firm decision: they will not accept the presence of “Gold Diggers” at the team’s upcoming barbecue, scheduled for April 21.

The initiative, which comes amidst the preparation for the friendly against England this Saturday (22), at 4:00 PM (Brasília time), at Wembley, demonstrates a new stance within the team, with players seeking a more positive environment free from figures that may be associated with inappropriate behavior.

The decision was made after Robinho’s trial by the STJ last Wednesday (20), which decided, by 9 votes to 2, that the player must serve a 9-year prison sentence in Brazil for rape crime committed and judged in Italy.

Robinho’s case, combined with Daniel Alves’s recent arrest for alleged sexual crime in Spain, has moved the national team players, who have come together to promote a more respectful environment free from any kind of harassment or violence against women.

The team’s barbecue, which traditionally was an event open to players’ family and friends, will now have a stricter filter, with the presence of “Gold Diggers” vetoed.

The measure, although it may generate controversy, is seen as an important step towards changing mentality within Brazilian football, acknowledging the importance of respecting women and combating the sexist culture that still persists in the sport.

The Brazilian national team, preparing for an important friendly against England, seeks not only results on the field but also a more positive and exemplary environment for future generations of players.
