Martha: "Yes, it will be my last World Cup"

The Brazilian forward Martha has said to feel that it is “surreal” that it is preparing for a sixth world and that the tournament in Australia and New Zealand will be the last. The 37-year-old made her World Cup debut in 2003 and is Brazil’s all-time top scorer with 117 goals. She has won the Copa América three times, but has yet to lift the World Cup.

Brazil’s best result in world soccer’s top competition was runner-up to Germany in 2007. “Yes, it will be my last World Cup,” he told local media in Brasilia on Monday. “We have to understand that there comes a time when we prioritize other things.” “I can only be grateful to have lived all those years in the national team. To have the opportunity to go to another World Cup, to the sixth, for me is something surreal.”

Coach Pia Sundhage said Marta, who has won the FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year award six times, could start the tournament on the bench. while recovering from a serious knee injury.

Marta had surgery last year to repair a torn ACL and returned to the national team in February after an 11-month absence. She did not play in friendlies against England and Germany in April, but came on as a 74th-minute substitute in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Chile.

Brazil kicks off their World Cup campaign against Panama on July 24 before taking on France and Jamaica.
