Da Silva named Croatian player of year

ZAGREB, Dec 27 (Reuters) - Brazilian-born striker Eduardo Da Silva has won the Croatian player of the year award for 2006 in a poll organised by a leading daily newspaper Vecernji List.

The 23-year-old Dinamo Zagreb striker earned a position in the national team after the World Cup in Germany in June and immediately proved himself.

He scored the first goal in a 2-0 victory in a Euro 2008 qualifier against England in Zagreb in October and then scored a hat-trick in a 4-3 away win against Israel a month later.

He is also the top scorer in the Croatian championship with 18 goals in as many games.

Da Silva said he was likely to stay with Dinamo for one more year.

'I'm here for another year, but if I continue playing well it will be difficult for Dinamo to retain me,' he said in an interview for the daily.

Rangers striker Dado Prso won the award in the previous three years.
