Debinha named 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup MVP


Debinha just added another accolade to her long list of accomplishments.

The explosive North Carolina Courage striker has been awarded the title of Challenge Cup MVP.

With an impressive three goals in four appearances, Debinha led the tournament in scoring, boosting North Carolina to a 2-1-1 record.

The Courage striker is dangerous from almost anywhere, knocking in goals from distance with authority. Debinha’s ability to strike bangers from the top of the box also makes her a nightmare for any back line (and a joy to watch).

This year marks Debinha’s fifth for the Courage. Since her move to the NWSL, the striker has made a name for herself as one of the most exciting players in the league. Debinha’s commanding performance for both club and country has put her in conversation as one of the best players in the world.

At 30 years old and on the precipice of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and the NWSL regular season, Debinha seems to be hitting her stride at precisely the right time.
