Rosana's reaction

“Her desire and her fitness, they're absurd. They're absolutely absurd. A few years before she turned 40, even, not much before, we used to do fitness tests. We had the GPS on our backs and she would have 20 per cent of everything above anyone else on the pitch. This was turning 40. I strongly believe that she's not from this planet.”

Since 1995, Formiga has been playing for the Brazilian national team. She has been featured in 204 games netting 29 goals, which is awesome.
