Dear futsal friends,
we're ready to celebrate the first category winner of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2008 - 9th Edition by Futsalplanet.com
. And obviously... ladies first!
So, who's the Best Woman Player of the World
in the year 2008? After contacting our experts all around the world, the choice has fallen on Cilene Pereira Paranhos
, in futsal just know on Cilene
!"Most complete player"
When an expert coach like Marcos Sorato "Pipoca"
refers to you in this way, it means you're running in the right direction. And that's the case of Cilene
, ray of light for both Jaguaré Esporte Clube
(Osasco/Jaguaré/Palmeiras/UniSant'Anna) and Brazil
National Team. The 24 years old paulista craque, though her club did not take part in the Liga Futsal Femenina
and Brazil had no challenges during the year, definitely confirmed her great potential and talent and is now looking for the next South American champs title. Ala/Fixa (Flank/Defender), Cilene
count on high technical quality, powerful shot, great passing ability, game organization and defense skills. Happy Ending
Twelve months spent on the highest standard found their natural happy ending with the Estadual league triumph, when Cilene, a capitã
, and her mates overcame São Bernardo/Sabesp/Corinthians
in the eagerly expected final, getting the title just fifteen seconds before the end, during the second match extra time.Taça Brasil and more
Cruzeirão, Metropolitano Universitário, JUBs, Torneio Internacional de Logroño (Spain), Piratininga, Estadual Paulista and, above all, Taça Brasil (historical triumph got on past April in Caçador - SC, over Nacional Gás/Unifor in the extra time final)!
This is the impressive series of titles conquered by Cilene
in the year 2008. Complete and winning, seems to be enough to become the winner of the Best Woman Player of the World
category of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2008 - 9th Edition by Futsalplanet.com
