Marta From Brazil Soccer
While the women’s World Cup has just wrapped up with Germany beating Brazil in the championship game 2 -0, a star has emerged. Her name is Marta Vieira da Silva, but you can just call her Marta. Her speed and techniques are in the class of Mia Ham another well-known soccer player from the USA. However there is one big exception when you compare Marta to Mia Ham and that would be the age factor. Marta is only 21 years old and I think most people in the world has put her as the best woman in the world in soccer!
She was the leader on that Brazil team and a big reason why they made it to the finals. One of her most impressive goals in the World Cup came against the USA Team. She cut through the USA Defense like it was a piece of butter and she was the hot knife. This young lady has a whole nation behind her back and she is going to be a force to wrecken with for any female soccer team in the 2008 Olympics. As impressive as the Germans were in shutting down Brazil in the World Cup Finals, you just have to believe in another year that Marta is going to be unstopable on that Brazil team.
Marta has been playing soccer since she was 7 years-old. Her heros growing up were Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, and Ronaldo. I’m not sure how good these players were, but if they were half the player Marta is, then they must have been pretty special. The American Team had not been beat in years and won their last 51 games or so before they ran into this phenom from South America. Brazil ran away with the game and the USA Team looked lost for most of it, while they stayed at their end of the field, just trying to block the shots coming from the Brazil players. Marta is a difference maker and is going to be a very rich young girl soon as the USA League is trying to land her in the states to play. If you guys thought Beckham was good and made an impact, wait until the Americans get a look at Marta!Click here for reuse options!
