Adriana Martín Santamaría (born 7 November 1986), commonly known as Adriana, is a Spanish international football striker currently playing for Levante UD of the Primera Division (Spain). She previously played for FA WSL club, Chelsea Ladies, Western New York Flash and Sky Blue FC of the WPS and Western New York Flash of the WPSL Elite,[1] as well as Atlético Madrid, FC Barcelona, CE Sabadell, RCD Espanyol and Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish Superliga. She has won three Spanish leagues and two national Cups, and was the league's top scorer in 2007 and 2010.[2]

Playing career[edit]


Martin played in the Champions League with Espanyol and Rayo Vallecano, scoring 10 goals in 12 games.

In August 2012, Adriana agreed to play the last six games of the FA WSL season with Chelsea Ladies.[3]

In early 2013, she signed with the Western New York Flash for the inaugural season of the NWSL.


Adriana is a longstanding member of the Spanish national team. In the qualification stage for the 2011 World Cup she scored 16 goals.[4]

In October 2012 Adriana scored in Spain's 3–2 extra time win over Scotland in the second leg of the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 qualifying play-off. The Spanish looked to be heading out when Veró Boquete had missed a penalty three minutes before hitting the winning goal on 122 minutes. Adriana had also scored Spain's goal in the first leg, a 1–1 draw at Hampden Park.

In June 2013, national team coach Ignacio Quereda confirmed Adriana as a member of his 23-player squad for the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 finals in Sweden.[5]
