WATCH: This Spanish Soccer Star Disguised as a Man Schools Her Male Opponents

The wage gap between male and female professional athletes is disturbing to say the least. The U.S. women’s soccer team that took home the 2014 World Cup took home $2 million as a team, while the German male team who won the World Cup pocketed $35 million in total. Why such a huge discrepancy? It’s not because of their skill, that for sure.

Brenda Perez, a professional soccer player from Spain can prove that women can play soccer just as good as the guys.

For the Spanish TV show “El Hormiguero,” Perez disguised herself as a man, complete with a wig, facial prosthesis, facial hair, and padding for her body. After she was transformed into “Dani Perez,” she was charged with the task of playing against some male soccer pros during a non-league match in Madrid.

In the video, you can see Brenda use her masterful footwork to easily slip past her male opponents. And then, right before she takes a penalty kick, she removes her disguise.

Watch the video below to see her fellow teammates’ reactions!
