This comes as a result of years and years of continuous progress in football and hard work. Therefore, the upswing of the sport generates a lot of interest in the betting market, especially in large national team competitions. You can find the best bookmakers to place your bets via the best betting agent and be among the winners.
At BET-IBC we also recognize and admire women and we need to present those that we consider as the best 5 legends of the sport:
1. Marta Vieira (Brasil)
Many people consider Marta Vieira as the best player in the history of football. Her achievements do support the thought. The Brazilian striker has won the FIFA award for the World’s Best Football Player six times, while her goals in the World Cup have made history. She is the top scorer in the history of both men’s and women’s competitions. Definitively a football queen.
2. Michelle Akers (United States)
Michelle Anne Akers is one of the first female football stars. The North American striker won a World Cup in China representing her country as well as a Golden Boot award. Also, she has been recognized as the Best Player of the 20th century by FIFA.
3. Sun Wen (China)
FIFA did not name only one player as the best of the 20th century. It proclaimed 2. Sun Wen was the other player that was recognized for her merits on the field. She’s the top scorer in the history of the Chinese women’s national team.
4. Ada Hegerberg (Norway)
This is one of the great stars of European soccer, especially in Norway, where she is recognized as the best female player in that country’s history. Hegerberg won the UEFA Best Women’s Player in Europe Award in August 2016, while, in 2017 and 2019 she was named BBC’s Women’s Footballer of the Year. Furthermore, in 2018, she was the first-ever recipient of the Ballon d’Or Féminin award. She holds the record for most goals during a UEFA Women’s Champions League season and she holds the title of all-time highest goal scorer in UEFA Women’s Champions League. Quite remarkable!
5. Hope Solo (United States)
Last but not least, we have one of the best goalkeepers in the history of women’s football. Her hands are idolized throughout the world and is praised for her reflexes and agility. Her career began as a forward at Richland High School, where she scored 109 goals. As a goalkeeper, for the North American Women’s Team she has played in the 2007 World Cup in China -third place-, Germany 2011 -runner up- and Canada 2015 -champion-. Additionally, she has won the gold medal in the 2008 Beijing and London 2012 Olympic Games. She definitely deserves a spot in our list of the 5 best legends of women’s football.
All the recognition that these 5 women (among many other outstanding colleagues in the field) have obtained should not be set aside as they have nothing to be jealous about their male counterparts. It is worth noting that the Women’s World Cup is growing in all aspects, and that it is attracting more and more interest from bettors. At the same time, we offer you the best male soccer predictions in our Tipsters section so that you are always one step ahead in your bets.
