Are you ready to start? The first step for the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2010 - 11th Edition by Futsalplanet.com is characterized by the Best Woman Player of the World category, celebrated for the fourth ever time. Who's the best one after the spanish icon Eva Manguan, the brazilian wall Cilene and the talented ukranian striker Alina Gorobets?
Our worldwide experts have casted their preference and in order to crown the Best Woman Player of the World in the year 2010 we have to move to South America again. Our congratulations to Vanessa Cristina Pereira, in futsal just known as Vanessa!
Liga Futsal show In 12 months of great achievements, one of the unforgettable days for Vanessa is definitely given by that wonderful November 20th. Four magnificent and decisive goals in the return leg final of Liga Futsal Femenina 2010 gave the title to the catarinense top club Unochapecò/Ntozzo/Female in the highly contested final against Kindermann/Uniarp/GGNet. Third in a row (2008/2009/2010) of a wonderful series, with the Vanessa's star (16 goals in the competition, runner up in the top scorers standing) shining above the women worldwide futsal. And this is just a little part of the Vanessa 2010!
Everything began in March How to start the year with the right step? Easy answer: just play and get the Taça Brasil. And that's exactly what Unochapecò/Ntozzo/Female decided to do. Vanessa was again in her "momentum": an hat-trick in the final (for a total amount of 7 seals in the competition, top scorer runner up) against Nacional Gas/Unifor was one of the keys to get the dreamed title for the Eder Popiolskigarotas.
Summer, sweet season of titles Taça das Nações, Jogo das Raparigas, Golden Cup and TICE: what a poker! This is the balance of a month spent in Portugal and, last but not least, when back in Brazil Vanessa and her Unochapecò/Ntozzo/Female got the JABs (Jogos Abertos Brasileiros) title as well! You're never tired of victories... aren't you? The summer season registered the same music: june brought the estadual (catarinense) league and then, in july, was time for the Catarinenses University games. No hope, respctively, for Unesc/FME/Cri Construções and Uniarp/Caçador por 6 a 3. No exception in September: the JASC (Jogos Abertos de Santa Catarina) title was Vanessa and mates' property. Also, a brand new title at home: the Olimpíadas Universitárias Brasileiras (OUJUBs) were conquered in the final against Unifor. But the worldwide fame was yet to come: Novi Sad was the home for that with Vanessa (13 goals, top scorers runner up) and her canarinhas mates getting the World University Futsal Championships glory.
World Cup dream came true If you begin something in the right way, why should you "end" that with different results? December 2010 was the month of the first ever and historical Women Futsal World Tournament. Time for easy questions: who got the title? who claimed the goalscorers title? Brazil and Vanessa, obvious!
Vander Iacovino's baptism "Ala esquerda, armadora, de velocidade, ótimo entendimento do jogo e grande finalizadora". Text and music by Vander Iacovino, head coach of the Brazi Women National Team and absolute legend of international futsal. What a baptism.
Spanish experience and back to the origin After such a great World Cup performance the doors of the Spanish Women Division de Honor were open for Vanessa. Perfect timing and choice for Burela FS, which could immediately count on a top player in their plantilla. Now is time to come back home for Vanessa, who will re-join Unochapecò/Ntozzo/Female. No doubts, she will succeed again!
If you have read the whole text you can now understand why... we're going to name Vanessa as the winner of the Best Woman Player of the World category of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2010 - 11th Edition by Futsalplanet.com!!
