Super Falcons forward, Francisca Ordega faces a lengthy prospect on the sidelines after picking up a knee injury while representing her club, Washington Spirits, in the US female league.
Prior to this setback, Ordega had been the arrowhead for “Spirits” having scored 4 goals and provided three assists, but she will now go for surgery on her right knee in the coming days.
Washington Spirits coach, Jim Gabarra confirmed the development with a note of frustration, but said he is filled with great expectation that the one he calls ‘Franny’ will bounce back soon.
He said: “Franny has had a great season and she has made great stride and improvement in her game. We all feel bad as she feels but we believe she will be back stronger”
