marta loves her so much


“The tribute to Formiga I believe it was the least I could do. She is an athlete who became for us here at the Seleção and around women’s football an icon, a myth, and a symbol of a great desire and perseverance, and of always believing that tomorrow will be better. And I personally had never seen Formiga raising a cup here at the Seleção as captain or something like that, so I figured it would be a good moment and I passed the captain’s armband to her there - a detail that Marco Aurélio gave me – a little tip. But I was already thinking about all this before the game, if I had the opportunity to share this moment with her, because she deserves all the honors.” - Marta
