Ekaterina Prokofyeva’s Total 5 for 2019
1st – Roberta Bianconi
Italian National Player | Club: Nuoto Club Milano | Position: Attacker
“Roberta has an excellent powerful shot, knows her job and more than once, she has rescued her team in critical moments”
2nd – Anni Espar
Spain National Player | Club: CN Sabadell /CN Mataro | Position: Driver
“She has an accurate pass in any situation. She likes to take responsibility and she does a lot of hard work, which is very important!”
3rd – Anna Karnaukh
Russian National Player | Club: KINEF- Surgutneftegaz | Position: Goalkeeper
“Anna is a fantastic goalkeeper, who has been proving for years that you can rely on her!”
4th – Kiley Neushul
USA National Player | Club: CN Sabadell | Position: Driver
“I like the way she sees the field, with her decision (pass) she creates great attacks. That often leads to some beautiful goals! Maybe it’s systematic, but I don’t think so (although, who knows).”
5th – Rita Keszthelyi
Hungarian National Player | Club: UVSE Budapest | Position: Driver/Wing
“Rita Keszthelyi is the leader of her team, having an accurate and strong shot. Each shot is dangerous. The team’s game depends on her game in many ways!”
