Ivana Ferreira Fuso (born 12 March 2001) is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Manchester United in the FA WSL and the Brazil national team. Born in Salvador, Bahia, and raised in Germany, she played for her adoptive nation at youth international level, and earned caps for the under-15s, under-16s, under-17s and under-19s.

Club career[edit]

SC Freiburg[edit]

Fuso moved from SV Böblingen to the youth academy of SC Freiburg in the summer of 2016.[1] Initially, Fuso was part of the under-17 squad and competed in the B-Junior Bundesliga South, scoring 16 goals in 17 appearances. From the 2017–18 season, Fuso was elevated to SC Freiburg II in the 2. Bundesliga. She made her SC Freiburg II debut on 24 September 2017 in a 0–0 draw against VfL Sindelfingen. She scored her first goal for the team in a 1–1 draw against 1. FC Köln II. On 31 March 2018, Fuso made her SC Freiburg first team debut as a 71st minute substitute for Klara Bühl in a 3–0 away win against Werder Bremen.[2]

FC Basel[edit]

On 30 June 2019, Fuso moved to Swiss Nationalliga A team FC Basel.[3]

Manchester United[edit]

On 14 July 2020, Fuso signed a two-year contract with an option for a third with English FA WSL club Manchester United.[4] After suffering two separate muscle and ligament tears at the beginning of the season,[5][6] Fuso was named in a matchday squad for the first time on 19 November 2020 but was an unused substitute during the 0–0 League Cup draw with Manchester City.[7] She made her debut on 16 December 2020 as a 76th minute substitute in a 1–0 defeat to Everton in the same competition.[8] Her first season with the club was ended in March after picking up an ankle injury having made six appearances in all competitions, all as a substitute.[9]

International career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Fuso has represented Germany at youth level from under-15 up to under-19. She made her national team debut on 28 October 2014 for the under-15 national team in a 13–0 victory over Scotland as a 13-year-old. She scored her first goal on 4 June 2015 for the under-15 team in a 7–0 win against Czech Republic.[10]

In 2018, Fuso was part of the under-17 squads for both the 2018 UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship and 2018 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. She captained the side and scored two goals at the Euros as Germany finished runners-up, losing in the final to Spain.[11] The team finished top of their group at the World Cup but was eliminated by Canada at the quarter-final stage.[12]

Fuso appeared twice during 2019 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship qualification, scoring in an elite round win over Greece in April 2019,[13] but was not selected for the tournament squad in July. She returned to the squad for 2020 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship qualification, scoring three goals in three appearances during the first qualifying round.[14][15]

Senior[edit]

In January 2021, Fuso was called up to the senior Brazil national team for the 2021 SheBelieves Cup.[16] She made her debut on 18 February in the opening game of the tournament as a 67th minute substitute for Chú Santos in a 4–1 win over Argentina.[17][18] In November 2021, Fuso was called-up for the 2021 Torneio Internacional de Futebol Feminino, making two substitute appearances against Venezuela and Chile as Brazil won the tournament.[19]

Personal life[edit]

On 8 July 2021, Fuso married fellow Brazilian-German Rodrigo Ferreira, a footballer in the Landesliga, during a small ceremony in Sindelfingen after a three-year relationship.[20] Ahead of the 2021–22 season, she announced she would be playing under her married surname, Ferreira Fuso.
