    Umeå IK
    Nat'l Team:
    Some guys from Swedish TV decided to make a documentary about Marta. They thought it would be cool when they saw all the excitement as she was signed to Umeå IK. Then they followed her home to Brazil over the holidays and, well, this is what they came up with.

    Swedish subtitles, some Swedish, some awful English spoken by Swedes, and of course lot's of Portugese....

    Seeing Marta trying to sing my all-time-favourite swedish children's song was really priceless. :D

    "At 35, Marta competed for the fifth time in the Olympics, and in Tokyo became the first player to score in five editions: Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and now Tokyo 2020. [...]

    "But she reinforced a message of optimism for the sport. 'Now is thinking about the future. To continue supporting the girls, supporting the sport because women's football does not end here.'"
