Super Falcons winger Francisca Ordega is looking forward to a fresh start at Russian club CSKA Moscow, reports Completesports.
Ordega leaves Spanish Iberdrola side Levante five months into a three-year contract as she opts for a new adventure with the reigning Russian champions.
“I love to challenge myself every time so I enjoy taking on challenges to test myself,” she had told BBC Sport Africa.
“Women’s football is fast growing in the last five years and teams are beginning to compete on a big stage.
“Playing in big competitions like the World Cup with your country and the Champions League with your club will only bring out the best in you.”
An established international player, she scored twice to help Nigeria win a ninth Women’s Africa Cup of Nations title in December 2018 and made the final three for Caf’s women’s Player of the Year award for 2018.
The much-travelled and vastly-experienced Ordega previously played in Russia and Sweden before moving to Washington Spirit in March 2015.
Back in December 2016, she became the first African to play in the Australian Westfield W-League when she joined Sydney FC on loan.
The former Nigeria youth international also had another loan stint at Spanish club Atletico de Madrid Femenino in 2017, followed by a spell in Asia with Chinese outfit Shanghai Shengli.
