Professional sports, as opposed to amateur sports, are sports in which athletes receive payment for their performance. Professional athleticism has come to the fore through a combination of developments. Mass media and increased leisure have brought larger audiences, so that sports organizations or teams can command large incomes. As a result, more sportspeople can afford to make athleticism their primary career, devoting the training time necessary to increase skills, physical condition, and experience to modern levels of achievement. This proficiency has also helped boost the popularity of sports.

Career

Early beginnings

Cristiane started her career at the local football clubs São Bernardo and Clube Atlético Juventus in São Paulo. At the age of 15, she debuted for the Brazil Under-19 team and took part in both the 2002 U-19 Women's World Championship in Canada and the 2004 U-19 Women's World Championship in Thailand; Brazil finished fourth in both tournaments. [4] In 2003, Cristiane scored one goal during one appearance as a substitute, when Brazil successfully defended their title at the Sudamericano Femenino. [5] She was also part of the squad for the 2003 Women's World Cup, appearing as a substitute in all four of Brazil's matches. [4]

Canada Country in North America

Canada is a country in the northern part of North America. Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres, making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada's southern border with the United States, stretching some 8,891 kilometres (5,525 mi), is the world's longest bi-national land border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. As a whole, Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land area being dominated by forest and tundra. Consequently, its population is highly urbanized, with over 80 percent of its inhabitants concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, with 70% of citizens residing within 100 kilometres (62 mi) of the southern border. Canada's climate varies widely across its vast area, ranging from arctic weather in the north, to hot summers in the southern regions, with four distinct seasons.

Breakthrough

Cristiane had her international breakthrough at the Olympic football tournament in Athens 2004. [6] Brazil reached the final, which they lost to the United States, but still achieved their biggest international success until then, by winning the Olympic silver medal. With five goals, Cristiane was honored as the tournament's top scorer along with Germany's Birgit Prinz. [4]

The match ended 1–0 after extra time.

Early in 2013 it was announced that Cristiane would join the Goyang Daekyo Noonnoppi WFC (Daekyo Kangaroos) in South Korea´s WK-League. She quit South Korea shortly afterwards, in order to join Centro Olímpico in Brazil.

In August 2015 Cristiane and compatriot Érika made a double transfer to French UEFA Women's Champions League contenders Paris Saint-Germain Féminines. Paris coach Farid Benstiti already knew Cristiane, having been her boss at Rossiyanka. [21]

In July 2017, Cristiane joined Changchun Zhuoyue on a transfer from Paris Saint-Germain Féminines. [22]

[23] She soon relented and indicated a willingness to return to the national team in February 2018, ahead of the 2018 Copa América Femenina. [24]
