If the award dedicated to the "boys" is the oldest one released by Futsalplanet.com, the 2007
edition of the UMBRO Futsal Awards
marks the absolute debut of the Best Woman Player Of the World
prize. We were thinking about this since a lot of time, and we're proud and happy to have women futsal finally represented in our annual awards, in the aim to improve it year by year. About this matter, we ask for your collaboration for the next edition, especially since the 2009 Awards, when we'd like to be back with the "popular voting".Who else?
Few doubts were in our mind when the time has come to crown the first ever Best Woman Futsal Player of the World
with the Umbro Futsal Award title, and almost all the indications/suggestions we got from worldwide futsal experts confirmed the initial idea: Eva Manguan Women Futsal Icon
It's not just a spanish matter. Eva Manguan
is everywhere recognized as the emblem of Women Futsal. Since her debut in Division De Honor at the age of 15 years, Eva's career has been an anthem with the power to celebrate futsal between women: this is true not only under the technical point of view (where the Encofra Navalcanero and Spain star is an always reliable "crack") but also in terms of futsal promotion and development. Women futsal must definitely say thanks to Eva Manguan
, and so we do as well. Enhorabuena Eva!
