In men’s football, Ronaldo de Lima used to be the owner of the record for scoring through the World Cup finals for a long time with 15 points. But that terrible achievement was broken by Miroslav Klose after what happened in Brazil 5 years ago.
The former German-Polish star has now scored 16 goals and is of course the greatest scorer of all time through the biggest round ball games on the planet. But in the women’s playground, now there is also a figure as admirable as Klose, that is “Marta” Vieira da Silva.
She has been a famous striker in the football industry for many years, and with the goal scored on the penalty spot in the clash with Australia (at the final round of the Women’s World Cup 2019), Marta currently owns 16 goalsahead of Ronaldo and Pele, equal to Klose.
But the achievement of the female version of “Ronaldinho” is even more amazing than anyone, because she did it in 5 different games (2003, 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019), playing 6 fewer games than Klose matches (18), and may also break the record in the near future.
How does Marta compare to Brazil’s World Cup legends?
Marta (5 World Cup) 16 goals, rate 100 minutes/table, 18 games
Ronaldo (2 World Cup) 15 goals, rate 108.27 minutes/goal, 19 matches
Pele (3 World Cup) 12 goals, 105 minutes/goal, 12 games
Cristiane (5 World Cup) 11 goals, 127 minutes/goal, 19 games
