Marta re-introduces herself to Sweden with a creative backheel

Dirty Tackle

The decision to suspend the 2012 WPS season drove Marta to join Tyreso in Sweden's Damallsvenskan in February. Marta scored 111 goals in 103 matches with Umea IK before moving to America, so the Swedes are already very familiar with her talents. But, as you might've guessed, she's wasted no time in giving them another glimpse of her brilliance.

Wearing No. 100, Marta scored twice in Tyreso's 7-0 season opener against KIF Orebro. Her first goal came in the 55th minute with her side already up 4-0. When KIF's goalkeeper blocked a shot from an angle right to Marta in front of the goal, the Brazilian flicked the ball over her shoulder and backheeled it into the net. She then celebrated by trying to lead her teammates in a samba dance, but most of them just walked away when they immediately realized they couldn't keep up.
