Debinha commits to Norwegian club Avaldsnes
Last season’s top scorer in the Norwegian Toppserien, Debinha has agreed to continue her career at Avaldsnes Viking Queens.
The Brazilian Women’s National Team player impressed during the 2014 season both at club level and international. This attracted interest from several big clubs including Swedish Damallsvenskan champions Rosengård.
However, Debinha thrives in Avaldsnes and Norway and has been wanting to return to the club but she faces a challenge from her national team leadership who would prefer she plays in Brazil so she is more available for meetings with the national side ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015.
It is not clear when Debinha will return to Avaldsnes – it is expected during February, the club are said to be ‘very pleased that “the small but great” player comes back to our club’.
The Norwegian Toppserien 2015 season starts in March with Avaldsnes kicking of their campaign against Arna-Bjørnar. Take a look at the complete Norway Toppserien fixtures for the 2015 season.
