International career[edit]

Aline missed the 2008 Beijing Olympics after suffering a knee ligament injury in a pre-tournament friendly against South Korea.[4] She had helped to secure Brazil's place at the tournament, by scoring in a 5–1 win over Ghana at a CONMEBOLCAF play-off staged at Beijing's Workers Stadium. Brazil had been forced into the play-off after their shock defeat by Argentina at the 2006 South American Women's Football Championship.
