Marta, most shining star at World Cup
Adjust font size:

Brazil's world-class striker Marta showed her amazing dribbling skills, incredible quick pace and innate scoring instinct in Hangzhou on Thursday, helping Brazil whitewash the two-time champions United States 4-0 in the FIFA Women's World Cup semi-final.



Marta, the FIFA best player of 2006, scored the second and the last goal for Brazil to increase her total tally to seven goals at this World Cup, topping the scorer sheet.


Few doubts that she is the top candidate for the Golden Shoe and Golden Ball awards.


In the breath-taking duel tonight, Marta broke the US defense from the right wing and sent home a flash low shot in the 27th minute.


She also sealed the 4-0 win in the 79th minute when she thrusted into the box from the left wing, danced past two defenders and fired another flash low shot home.


"Any game against US was tough, so it was a fantastic win and we make history," said Marta said after the match.
