While the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) offseason occurs, a handful of Sky Blue FC players have made the move overseas to continue developing their game in international competition. Throughout the NWSL offseason, we will keep you updated with the latest news and developments with our players.

Forward Nadia Nadim registered another goal for Fortuna Hjørring over the weekend, helping her team to a 2-0 defeat over fellow Danish club KoldingQ in Elitedivisionen play. Fortuna Hjørring currently sits atop the Elitedivisionen table with 27 points, even with Brøndby, as both teams have an unbeaten 8-0-3 record. Next up for Fortuna Hjørring is a UEFA Women’s Champions League match with Brescia Calcio Femminile on Wednesday.

Sky Blue FC midfielder Sarah Killion played 73 minutes for Adelaide United in Australia W-League play on Sunday, with her club recording a 4-0 win over Melbourne Victory. Adelaide is currently in second place in the W-League standings, claiming seven points via a 2-0-1 record and remaining just one of two unbeaten clubs left in the league.

Perth Glory fell 1-0 to Sydney FC in Australia W-League action on Sunday, with forward Sam Kerr and midfielder Nikki Stanton making the start and playing a full 90 minutes. Defender Caitlin Foord also came onto the field in the 58th minute of play. Kerr caused havoc for the Sydney FC back line throughout the encounter, but her foes were able to do just enough to keep the slate clean. Perth now holds an overall record of 1-2-1 (4 points).
