UMBRO Futsal Awards 2008 - Best Young (Under 21) Player of the World

UMBRO Futsal Awards 2008 - Best Young (Under 21) Player of the World
Dear futsal friends,
the fourth day of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2008 - 9th Edition by Futsalplanet.com is here to celebrate youth futsal. We obviously refer to the Best Young (Under 21) player of the World category that, for the first time in this edition, will leave Brazil and move towards Europe. So that today, after the Cilene, Malwee and Brazil triumphs, is the day of the russian star Dmitri Prudnikov!

Final Four revelation
The whole "Old Continent" was waiting for the Spanish cracks and for the Moscow stars in the past UEFA Futsal Cup final four. But the team celebrating at the end of the Moscow event was neither ElPozo nor Dinamo. It came from the Urals, and one of the main characters of Viz-Sinara was represented by the shining talent of Dmitri Prudnikov. Speed, goals, technique and determination: futsal future is in his hands (and feet!)

World Cup Experience
As a consequence of his outstanding season with Viz-Sinara, Oleg Ivanov called on him for the World Cup in Brazil: not that bad for a player born in 1988. And Prudnikov did not disappoint Russian futsal, beeing one of the key players of the national team in Brasilia.

European Champion
If what we have reported until now is not enough, the best part has yet to come. On past december 2008 Russia hosted the historical first ever European Under 21 Futsal tournament, and the local squad coached by Oleg Ivanov conquered the first place at the end of an unforgettable final against Italy? And who was the captain of the team? Easy answer, Dmitri Prudnikov! And more: who scored the decisive double penalty just four minutes before the end of the second extra time? Same answer: Dmitri Prudnikov! Isn't that enough to be crowned as winner of the Best Young (Under 21) Player of the World category of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2008 - 9th Edition by Futsalplanet.com? We believe it is!
