Alinco Signs For Washington Spirit

13 June 2015, 08:16

Lagos - Nigeria international player Josephine Chukwunonye has left Rivers Angels of the Nigeria Women Premier League to sign for USA NWSL outfit Washington Spirit.

The 23-year-old central defender has signed a 2-year contract with Washington Spirit, and an insider told News24 told that the move to USA will enormously develop her game further.

She will become the second Nigerian international to play at the club joining sharp shooting forward Francisca Ordega.

''Alinco'' as she is known by her admirers has travelled to Canada to participate in the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 with Nigeria.

Josephine was a key player in Nigeria’s 4th place finish at the 2010 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup which was hosted by Japan. 

“I am excited to join the Washington Spirit family; it’s a thing of joy and a dream come true for me,” Josephine was quoted by the club's official website. 

“I love playing with great players like Crystal Dunn, who I faced in the U20 World Cup in 2012. I am excited to work with coach Parsons because I know he will bring out the best in me.”

“Josephine is a very talented defender with tremendous character,” Spirit general manager and head coach Mark Parsons said. “She brings plenty of defensive qualities, while being very technical and confident with the ball at her feet.”

The move is subject to the player's P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
