FLASH ACQUIRE RIGHTS TO ROSANA FROM HOUSTON
Defending Champs Gain Rights to Brazilian Veteran in Exchange for 3rd Round Pick

BUFFALO, NY (December 23, 2016) --- The defending NWSL champion Western New York Flash are looking to acquire some depth ahead of the 2017 season and have acquired the rights to Brazilian star Rosana via a trade with the Houston Dash. In return, the Flash will send a third-round pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft to Houston.

"This is a great opportunity to bring an experienced, top-class international player to the Flash," said Flash General Manager Rich Randall. "Credit to our Technical Director Charlie Naimo, as he continues to do an excellent job of finding ways to improve our roster."

Rosana, 34, is a native of São Paolo, Brazil and has logged 112 appearances for the Brazilian National Team since 2000. The left winger has 21 goals for the Brazilians. She has participated in four FIFA World Cups and four editions of the Olympic Games for Brazil.

The winger returned to the United States in 2014 and Houston acquired her rights. However, Rosana was included in an 18-month program with the Brazilian National Team to prepare for the 2015 FIFA World Cup. The offensive weapon most recently played club soccer for Paris Saint-Germain of the French Division 1 Féminine. In ten matches with PSG, Rosana scored 3 goals.
