Grazielle Pinheiro Nascimento (born March 28, 1981), commonly known as Grazielle or Grazi, is a Brazilian women's soccer player. She was part of the Brazil women's national football team at two Olympic soccer tournaments and at three editions of the FIFA Women's World Cup.

Club career

In 1995, Grazielle moved to São Paulo and over the following five years represented the women's sections of local clubs Saad Esporte Clube, São Paulo FC and Portuguesa. She was without a club from 2000 until 2003, when she joined Botucatu.

Grazielle returned to Botucatu after spending six months in Spain with Levante during 2006. She also played for Santa Isabel (MG), Barra FC (RJ) and SE Gama (DF) before joining Santos in 2010. She represented América FC of São Manuel before the 2012 London Olympics. The club wanted her to return after the tournament, but Grazielle agreed a contract with Portuguesa instead.

At the 2015 Copa do Brasil de Futebol Feminino, Grazielle played for Abelhas Rainhas, who were eliminated in the round of 16 by eventual winners Kindermann.

International career

Grazielle made her debut for Brazil in an 11–0 win over Mexico at the 1998 Women's U.S. Cup. In February 1999, 17-year-old Grazielle stood in for the injured Roseli de Belo as Brazil's representative in a FIFA World Star team to play a showpiece friendly against the United States in San Jose. She was then part of the Brazilian roster which reached the semi-finals of the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup.

After drifting out of contention, Grazielle was recalled ahead of the 2004 Athens Olympics. She was converted from a forward to an attacking right wing-back and helped Brazil win silver medals.
