Thaís Duarte Guedes (born January 20, 1993),[3] commonly known as Thaís Guedes or Thaisinha, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for the South Korean WK League club Incheon Red Angels and the Brazil national team. With Brazil's youth teams she competed at the 2008 and 2008 editions of the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, as well as the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. At senior international level she played at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup and the 2012 Summer Olympics tournament. A skilful forward, her playing style has been compared to that of Neymar.[4]

Club career[edit]

In February 2013 Thaís and her Vitória das Tabocas teammate Beatriz Zaneratto João announced that they had accepted a transfer to South Korean club Incheon Hyundai Steel Red Angels.[5]

International career[edit]

She made her debut for the senior national team in December 2010, a 3–0 2010 Torneio Internacional Cidade de São Paulo win over Mexico at Pacaembu Stadium.[6] Thaís 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.

Thaís was recalled to the national team after a 23-month absence in November 2015. She had returned to form with her Korean club after initially struggling to adapt and suffering several injuries.[7]
