(CNN)Brazil football legends Marta and Formiga created Olympic history on Wednesday in their opening match of the 2020 Tokyo Games.

Marta's brace means she now has 12 Olympic Games goals to her name, having scored her first in Athens in 2004, and is now just two shy of the all-time record held by her compatriot Cristiane.

She wasn't the only one of Brazil's players to make history on Wednesday though, as her 43-year-old teammate Formiga also created some Olympic history of her own.

She made her Brazil debut at the 1995 World Cup as a 17-year-old and has played in every Olympic Games since women's football made its debut at the 1996 Atlanta Games.
