Poliana Barbosa Medeiros (born 6 February 1991), known as Poliana, is a Brazilian football defender who plays for American club Houston Dash and the Brazil women's national football team.

Club career

Poliana signed for Santos in 2009, after a successful trial period.[2] After moving on to São José, Poliana won the Copa Libertadores Femenina on three occasions; in 2011, 2013 and 2014. She scored two goals in the 2014 final.[3]

In December 2014 Poliana played for São José in the 2014 International Women's Club Championship, which they won by thrashing English wild card entrant Arsenal Ladies 2–0 in the final. Later that month she agreed a transfer to the United States, with National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) team Houston Dash.[4]

Before Poliana could play for Houston she was included in an 18-month residency programme intended to prepare Brazil's national team for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada and the 2016 Rio Olympics.[5]

In July 2015 Poliana agreed to play for Icelandic Úrvalsdeild club Stjarnan in their UEFA Women's Champions League qualifiers the following month.[6]

International career

After representing Brazil at the 2010 edition of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, Poliana made her senior debut at the 2012 Torneio Internacional Cidade de São Paulo de Futebol Feminino.[7]
