Ordega voted NWSL Player of the Week

 By Rachael Ugiagbe

Super Falcons attacker Francisca Ordega has been voted Week 4 National Women Soccer League (NWSL) Player of the Week after a spectacular performance for Washington Spirit against Sky Blue on Sunday.

Ordega had a fantastic display in Spirit’s 4-3 win over their visitors; after she scored a brace, provided an assist and forced an own goal by the opposing defence.

It was the Nigerian’s first goal of the current term, which also saw her team securing their first win of the season and thus moving to the seventh position on the league table.

It would be recalled that the Nigeria international recently became the first African to play in Australia following her loan spell with Sydney FC where she netted once for the club.
