Womens World Cup – Brazilian Beaks Record

Marta has won virtually every individual and team honor available throughout her illustrious career — and now the Brazilian has another record to add to her collection. Her penalty in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over South Korea at the 2015 Women’s World Cup propelled her to the top of the tournament’s all-time goalscorer list.

She surpassed retired Germany international Brigit Prinz and went two ahead of current USWNT star Abby Wambach who, at 35 years of age, is surely playing in her last World Cup. It was fitting that her record-breaking goal came from the penalty spot against South Korea, 12 years after her first for Brazil at a World Cup — which, incidentally, was also a penalty against the same opposition.
