Deja vu for Marta
Marta’s strike against Korea Republic was her 15th goal at a Women’s World Cup, meaning she pulled away from Germany’s Birgit Prinz to become the outright all-time record goalscorer at the tournament.
Curiously enough, her first goal at the finals, in 2003, was also a penalty against the Koreans. Source:fifa.com
