Brazilian women’s soccer ‘legend’ Marta, 6th Olympic appearance

Marta, the ‘living legend’ of Brazilian women’s soccer

Marta (Orlando), the ‘living legend’ of Brazilian women’s soccer, will compete in the 2024 Paris Olympics, which will be her sixth and final Olympics.

Sports media ESPN reported on the 2nd (local time), “Marta has been named to the final roster of 18 Brazilian women’s soccer players for the Paris Olympics.”

Marta, who is considered one of the most experienced players in women’s soccer history, told CNN in April that the Paris Olympics would be her last for the national team.

Marta, who has been competing since the 2004 Athens Olympics, has yet to win a gold medal.

Brazil lost to the United States in the finals at both the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics, taking home the silver medal. 슬롯사이트

Marta also became the first player in women’s football history to score a goal at five consecutive Olympic Games, having done so at the 2020 Tokyo Games in 2021.

Born in 1986, Marta is a ‘superstar’ in women’s soccer, having won the FIFA World Player of the Year award six times.

Starting with the 2003 World Cup debut in the United States, she has scored 17 goals in six tournaments, holding the record for most goals scored in a World Cup for both men and women.

Marta also holds the record for most goals scored in an A match by a Brazilian player (118 goals). This far surpasses the record for most goals by a Brazilian male player held by Neymar (Al Hilal) with 79 goals.

“Marta, one of the best players of all time, is still doing well and deserves to be on this list,” Brazil coach Artur Elias said.

Brazil will compete in Group C of the Paris Olympics alongside 2023 Australia-New Zealand World Cup winners Spain, Japan and Nigeria. 파칭코 종류
