4 Scoring Birds

Marta (Brazil)
Despite being on the losing side in the Womens World Cup Final 2007, 21 year old Marta had plenty of consolation in collecting the Golden Ball and adidas Golden Shoe awards as the tournament's best player and top goalscorer respectively.

Birgit Prinz (Germany)
A hat-trick against Argentina, on the score-sheet against Japan and a goal in the World Cup final against Brazil proved to be a good tournament for Birgit, who has scored 115 goals for her country making her one of the greatest markswomen the world has ever seen.

Abby Wambach (USA)
Athletic Abby, seen here scoring a cracker against Sweden, also scored against Korea DPR, England and twice against Norway in the 2007 World Cup third place play-off. The No20 picked up the 'Silver Shoe' award for her six goals and one assist.

Ragnhild Gulbrandsen (Norway)
30 year old Ragnhild opened Norway's tournament account against Canada, and was on target again the 1-1 draw with Australia before bagging a fine hat-trick in the 7-2 win over Ghana
