Ordega still stranded in Nigeria as Banda returns to China


Nigeria’s Francisca Ordega has been forced to postpone her return to China due to the flights ban while Zambia’s Barbra Banda reunited with Shanghai this week.

Ordega and Banda were missing when the Chinese Women’s Super League club resumed training for the first time in June following more than two months of inactivity due to the coronavirus.

The African duo were last part of the Shanghai set up during a preseason tour in Portugal, where they trained before the world went into lockdown in March following the global health crisis.
