Formiga’s place in the ranking has dropped a little bit but the fact that, at 40, she is still performing at such a high level says everything about her enduring quality. The composed midfielder was not always a regular for PSG during 2018 but she started the French Cup final, helping her side overcome Lyon, and was prominent in Brazil’s Copa América Femenina triumph. After scoring in the group stage against Ecuador she found the net in the final against Colombia, proving she can still do it at the very top.
Olivier Echouafni, PSG manager:
“Formiga is one of the most decorated players in the history of women’s football. At 40 years of age she still turns in top performances on the field. She is a key player in our squad and commands great respect in the PSG dressing room. She is an exceptional footballer.”
