Breakers Sign Fabiana and Del Rio

The Boston Breakers have added two offensive players to their arsenal. Boston has officially re-signed Fabiana, who played forward for the Breakers last season, and have added Spanish international Laura Del Rio.

Primarily a forward, Fabiana played 7 games for Boston last year, but did not score. At just 20 years old, she is one of the youngest players in the league. She is also a member of the Brazilian National Team.

Del Rio, 27, is no stranger to American soccer. She has played the last two seasons with FC Indiana of the W-League, where she scored over 30 goals. The rights to Del Rio originally belonged to Los Angeles and later Chicago, but neither team was able to sign her. Most recently, Del Rio has been playing for FFC Frankfurt of the Frauen Bundesliga, where she has scored 6 goals in just 10 games. She is teammate of Washington Freedom defender, Alex Krieger, at FFC Frankfurt. Several members of the German National Team also play for FFC Frankfurt, including Birgit Prinz, Nadine Angerer, Kerstin Garefrekes, and Saskia Bartusiak.
