Umbro Futsal Awards 2007-> Best Player of the World

UMBRO Futsal Awards 2007 - Best Player of the year
The "oldest" award by Futsalplanet.com. After six brazilians stars (hat trick for Manoel Tobias, double for Falc„o and one "title" for the brazzurro Adriano Foglia) and the unique iberian triumph by Javi Rodriguez, the Best Player of the World category award in 2007 goes to the russian star Vladislav Shayakhmetov.

Ural boy, the Cup is in your hands
As known, before joining Dinamo Yamal at the beginning of the current season, Vladislav Shayakhmetov was the undisputed idol of the Viz-Sinara Ekaterinburg fans. The 2007 year registered the beginning of the Viz-Sinara's winning era, started through the Russian Cup (06/07 edition) triumph over Dinamo on April 2007 (click here to know more). Just one point, in the national Superleague, gave the title to Dinamo, but nothing denied Viz-Sinara as first option to break the Moscow's power and Shayakhmetov as shining star of Russian futsal. After that he took part in the Gondomar 2007 campaign, leading Russia to a third place in the UEFA Futsal Championship.

Russian pride, Continental hope
Shayakhmetov is the clear example of the big chance for European futsal, which must now prove not to be "slave" of Brazilian talents in order to launch its competitions and improve the standard. Well done Vladislav, you're the winner of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2007 - Best Player of the World category!
