Débora Cristiane de Oliveira (born 20 October 1991), known as Debinha, is a Brazilian football forward who plays for the North Carolina Courage in the National Women's Soccer League and the Brazil women's national football team.
In the end of 2014 she had a short loan spell between November and December together with Rosana at São José during the club's successful attempt to win both Copa Libertadores Femenina and International Women's Club Championship during that year. She returned to Norway in the beginning of 2015.
Debinha signed with the Western New York Flash of the United States-based National Women's Soccer League on January 5, 2017, days before the franchise announced that it had been sold and would be moved from Rochester, New York, to Cary, North Carolina. Debinha reportedly wasn't informed of the franchise's plans to move when she was signed. She reported to North Carolina and was made a starting midfielder from the start of their season, and scored the Courage's first goal in their home stadium.
After representing Brazil in the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, Debinha made her senior debut at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara. She was named as an alternate for the Brazil squad at the 2012 London Olympics.
In December 2013 Debinha scored twice in a 3–1 win over Scotland at the 2013 Torneio Internacional de Brasília de Futebol Feminino.
