I would normally be the last person in the entire world to be posting a link to a women's soccer highlight, but I taped the Brazil-U.S. World Cup Semifinal this morning because I wanted to see Brazil play.

They have a woman on the team, Marta Vieira da Silva, and she is absolutely sensational. Brazil won 4-0, and when she scored the last goal of the game, she did so with a move that has to be one of the greatest in women's soccer history. Here's a link to the clip (you see a great angle on the move with about :40 left in the video): Marta.

Here's a YouTube video as well. The woman has some other-worldly skills (watch at about :20 of the video--what the?). See it here.
