Or maybe you could call here the ronaldino of women’s football?Marta had a dream of becoming a professional soccer player and the world’s best female player. She used to sneak out of the house or skip school to play soccer with the boys and quickly picked up the fundamental skills that would launch her to greatness. There were no girls teams in Dios Riachos, so she left for Rio de Janeiro at the age of 14 to play women’s club soccer in the big city, first with Vasco da Gama, then with Sao Martins.
In 2005, Swedish Television produced a 30-minute documentary on the star player and her transition from equatorial Brazil to sub-polar Umea. It was called “Marta: Peles kusin” (Marta: the Cousin of Pele). In the opening scene, the crew is met in Marta’s hometown by her cousin, whom she playfully calls Pele. The great soccer player himself once affirmed the nickname given to her by fans, “Pele with skirts,” conceding that she had skills equal to his but better legs. Like Pele (and several other Brazilian soccer legends, such as Garrincha, Romario and Ronaldo), Marta is inducted in the walk of fame of the 200,000-seat Maracana Stadium in Rio. She is the first female to be bestowed with that honor.
In 2006, Marta became the first Brazilian to win the FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year award. Following her performance at the World Cup, she earned the honor again in 2007.Backing up this wonder female player just take a look at this amazing goal she scored in 2007 against the usa
