Ordega’s goal inspires Shanghai’s win


Francisca Ordega was on target as Shanghai thrashed Wuhan 3-0 in a Chinese Women’s Super League encounter on Wednesday.

The Nigeria international scored her first Chinese Women’s Super League goal in a 1-1 draw with holders Dalian Quanjian on July 25.

At the Tazihu Football Centre, Wuhan was aiming to pip Shanghai for second spot but the visitors were the eventual victors.

The 25-year-old Super Falcons striker opened the scoring for the Hongkou Football Stadium outfit in the first half.

After the restart, Camilla and Yang Lina netted what was their first of the season to get on the score sheet to seal the crucial away win.​
