Brazil’s Soccer Reina Marta Trumps Germany’s Miroslav Klose For All-Time World Cup Scoring Record
If you’re not watching FIFA’s Women’s World Cup, you are not living life! We hope you’re not one of those people that is under the wrong assumption that men’s soccer is more enjoyable and thrilling to watch. Women’s soccer has so much excitement and so much history in the making.
Yesterday’s battle between Italy and Brazil was incredible for more reasons than one.
Brazil beat Italy 1 to 0, and now they’re one of the best teams in the World Cup.
According to sports news outlets, yesterday’s score for Brazil means “Italy, Brazil, and Australia qualify for the knockout stages while Jamaica, the first Caribbean country to play in the Women’s World Cup, fail to progress after three defeats in three matches.”
The winning goal was made by none other than Marta, which garnered a historic 17th World Cup score.
Marta, known for her single name moniker (full name Marta Vieira da Silva), made the winning kick during the penalty shot against Italy. Her stellar kick now means she’s “moving her ahead of Germany’s Miroslav Klose to become the outright top scorer in both the men’s and women’s game,” according to ESPN.
You still think women’s soccer doesn’t match up to men’s?
Here’s how people on social media are taking the news that Marta made history.
Let’s pop that champagne!
Marta is a pioneer in so many ways.
We’re sure she’s inspired countless of people.
How about a match between Marta and any of these other male suckers?
We know who’d shine on through.
She’a legend in her own right.
There’s no match.
We’re sure this is not her last goal.
Not by a long shot.
