Club career

When Rosana transferred to Avaldsnes in August 2013, she asked the wealthy Norwegian club to sign Debinha too.[2] Debinha became top-scorer of the 2014 Toppserien.

At the end of 2014 she had a short loan spell between November and December together with Rosana at São José during the club's successful attempt to win both Copa Libertadores Femenina and International Women's Club Championship during that year. She returned to Norway at the beginning of 2015.[3]

From February 2016 to January 2017, she played for Dalian Quanjian in the Chinese Women's Super League.[1]

Debinha signed with the Western New York Flash of the United States-based National Women's Soccer League on 5 January 2017, days before the franchise announced that it had been sold and would be moved from Rochester, New York, to Cary, North Carolina.[4] Debinha reportedly wasn't informed of the franchise's plans to move when she was signed.[5][6] She reported to North Carolina and was made a starting midfielder from the start of their season, and scored the Courage's first goal in their home stadium.[7]

Debinha appeared in every regular season game for the Courage in 2017 and scored four goals.[8] She started the semi-final game against the Chicago Red Stars but was forced to leave the game after dislocating her elbow in the 10th minute.[9] This injury forced her to miss the Championship game, which the Courage lost 1–0 to the Portland Thorns.[10]

In 2018, Debinha was named to the NWSL Team of the Month for March.[11] She scored eight goals during the regular season, helping the Courage win their second straight NWSL Shield. Debinha was named to the 2018 NWSL Second XI. During the play-offs she was in the starting line-up for the semi-final and final. Debinha scored in the 13th minute of the Championship game as North Carolina beat the Portland Thorns 3–0 to win the 2018 NWSL Championship.[12]

International career

After representing Brazil in the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, Debinha made her senior debut at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara. She was named as an alternate for the Brazil squad at the 2012 London Olympics.[13]

In December 2013 Debinha scored twice in a 3–1 win over Scotland at the 2013 Torneio Internacional de Brasília de Futebol Feminino.[14]
