Former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro has a knack for controversy -- or is it just the result of being a woman in what's decidedly a man's game? Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is being scrutinized for demoting Carneiro after an incident in which she treated a player on the field who Mourinho felt was insufficiently in need. But the referee apparently summoned Carneiro, and Mourinho's reaction is being viewed by some as sexist. He called Carneiro's actions "naive." Carneiro has left the team after her demotion.
Carneiro has been subjected to sexism before -- by opposing fans. The taunting of Carneiro in various visiting stadiums triggered a plea for decorum that drew the attention of European football's highest authorities. Who is this undeniably attractive woman who's gone so far in her chosen field, where few women have gone? Take the Eva Carniero mini quiz.
