2 greatest female players of all time

The world football village not only recognizes outstanding male players, but this king of sport also honors outstanding female players.

Here, we will introduce to you the top 2 greatest female players of all time in the history of world football.

1. Marta (Brazil)

Marta Vieira da Silva was born in 1986, is considered the No.1 legend of the world women’s football village. She is mentioned with many different nicknames such as football queen, “Pele wears a skirt”, “the best player in the world”…

Known for excellent ball-handling skills, ability to observe, dribble, and scored. Marta is the owner of FIFA player of the year 5 times in a row in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

She also won the Golden Ball at the U19 Women’s World Cup in 2004. She and the Brazil team won the Silver Medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics, 2008. Marta currently holds the record for most World Cup goals with 15 goals, surpassing Birgit Prinz’s previous record of 14 scores.

2. Mia Hamm (USA)

Mia Hamm was born in 1972, she is considered a legend, a symbol of American football. Mia Hamm is the inspiration for the dream of many girls around the world who bring gender equality in football. With 158 goals in 275 appearances for the national team, Mia Hamm is hailed by American men as the greatest striker of all time in the United States.

American football fans in the US and around the world know Mia Hamm for their aggressive style, not afraid of disputes. Her appearance is always a danger to any defense and goalkeeper of any team.

Mia Hamm has twice become the best female player in the world (2001 and 2002) and was chosen by the football king Pele as one of the 125 greatest players in the world of all time. Mia Hamm officially suspended her shoes and closed her illustrious career in 2004.

Marta – a legendary female with a salary equal to only 0.3% of Neymar

The Brazilian striker made a message of gender equality after setting the record for the 17th goal in the 2019 World Cup.

Marta – a six-time FIFA player of excellence – walked to this year’s women’s soccer World Cup with shoes without a sponsor logo. She wants to fight for the income and investment disparity between men and women football. Like Marta, many experts try to explain why the best female player in the world is only paid 380,000 USD per year, equal to 0.3% of the salary of fellow football star – Neymar.

The remuneration between men and women football is more clearly pointed out in France Football’s statistics in early June 2019. The total salary of the five highest paid female players in the world is about $ 2 million, less than one-tenth of the fifth highest paid male player – Gareth Bale ($ 45 million).

Ada Hegerberg – the best female player of 2018 – received the highest salary, with $ 450,000 per season, 325 times less than Lionel Messi. On a monthly basis, the salary of the striker currently playing for Lyon is 37,000 USD, while Messi receives 12 million USD. Hegerberg’s compensation is even lower than the average salary of male players playing in the Brazilian championship ($ 650,000 per season).

Hegerberg also refused to play for Norway for the past two years, claiming that the Football Association of this country treated unfairly young women players.

The common explanation for the income gap between male and female football is profit. Women’s matches are much less profitable than men’s football, making them less invested than their male counterparts. But, economics professors do not accept that explanation, because it is contrary to the relationship between supply and demand in economics. They think that a female player will help women’s football to develop, if they have adequate income.

Professor Almeida also said that women are not qualified to achieve the results as men, not only in sports but also in life. Women who want to speak out about male inequality need to be more successful than men.

40 years ago, Brazil had a public football player. In 1979, a law banning women from playing football was lifted in South America’s largest country, but its repercussions are still today. Women’s football has no background and a response from the masses.
