Brazilian soccer legend Marta has confirmed that the 2023 Women’s World Cup will be her last.

On Monday, the 37-year-old told local local media that it feels “surreal” to be preparing for a sixth Women’s World Cup.

“Yes, it will be my last World Cup,” Marta said in Brasilia on Monday. “We have to understand that a time comes for us to prioritize other things.

“I just have to be thankful to have lived all those years in the national team. To have the opportunity to go to another World Cup, a sixth one, for me is something surreal.”

Brazil head coach Pia Sundhage said it’s likely Marta will start the World Cup on the bench as she continues to recover from a knee injury. The six-time FIFA World Player of the Year had surgery last year after tearing her ACL. She returned to the national team in February after 11 months.

Marta did not play in the team’s friendlies in April, but she appeared as a substitute in Brazil’s 4-0 win over Chile on Sunday. Brazil will face Panama, France and Jamaica in the group stage at the World Cup.

Marta, a forward with the NWSL’s Orlando Pride, is Brazil’s all-time leading scorer with 117 career international goals. Brazil’s women’s national team has yet to win a World Cup trophy, with its best result being a runner-up finish in 2007.

Formiga played in her final international match with the Brazilian national team on Thursday, but only saw the field for a mere 15 minutes.

When asked why she didn’t start the legendary midfielder, national team coach Pia provided the following statement:

“The reason Formiga played 15 minutes is because she is not the future of the national team,” she said. “And we have to build that future. She played and almost scored, it was an incredible 15 minutes.”

The 43-year-old has competed in seven World Cups and seven Olympics, both of which are world records. At the Tokyo Olympics in July, she became the first player to compete in seven Olympic Games, having played in every Olympics since women’s soccer’s debut in 1996.

For her final game, Formiga’s mother, Dona Celeste, flew to see her make her final appearance. Celeste, who is afraid of flying, had reportedly never seen her daughter play in person before.

Legendary Brazilian midfielder Formiga is set to play her final match with the national team this month, the Brazilian national team announced Tuesday.

“The legendary Formiga will say goodbye to the women’s national team,” the confederation said on social media. “It is a historic moment for a life dedicated to the yellow shirt and to soccer. We love you.”

The 43-year-old has competed in seven World Cups and seven Olympics, both of which are world records. Having played in every Olympics since women’s soccer’s debut in 1996, she became the first women’s player to compete in seven Olympic Games during the Tokyo Olympics in July.

The most-capped player in the history of the Brazilian national team, Formiga has played in 233 matches. Having made her debut at 17 years old at the 1995 World Cup, her final game will come in a friendly against India on Nov. 25.

To put it in perspective: Playing football was still illegal for women in Brazil when Formiga was born in 1978.

Throughout her extensive career, the midfielder has won two Olympic silver medals (2004, 2008) and was part of the Brazil team that lost to Germany in the 2007 World Cup final.
