After hundreds of goals, thousands of registered users and weeks of activity, we’ve reached the most important part of the Umbro Golaço competition – picking the winners! Five winners will be chosen this week by Umbro and Roberto Carlos, with those chosen getting a very special prize. They’ll be flown to Brazil along with a friend in May to meet Roberto Carlos, enjoy a very special training session with him and also experience life as a player thanks to Brazil’s Clube Atletico Paranaense.
While we discuss and debate the hundreds of entries, we can reveal one of the winners already – the one chosen via a public vote. We had a lot of votes from users all around the world, but one goal was a clear winner when we counted up the totals earlier today. Congratulations to Jonty Thomas from South Africa, whose video Laduma has won the prize for the most popular! Check out his Golaço here.
Jonty will be joined by four other entrants on the plane to Brazil – and we’ll be announcing another winner each day for the rest of this week. Keep your eyes here on the Umbro blog to find out who’s been chosen….
