Abby Wambach is coming back!
You may or may not have been wondering what has happened to Abby Wambach and why she isn't playing for the New york flash this season because she was such a good player last season.... have new york side lost their minds? No they haven't... they just haven't been able to play her because the U.S national team damaged her!!
Wambach hasn't been playing for the new york flash in this years 2014 nwsl season because of a fractured orbital bone which has been a huge disappointment to fans this year as in the last nwsl season Wambach was one the flash's star' players.
But it has now been announced that Abby Wambach will be returning as she has been medical cleared and able to be play in New york flash's next game on Saturday against n New york flashs next game on saturday against Portland Thorns FC. Wambach got injured after playing a national game on 10th April against China. Portland Thorns who are currently the champions of the nwsl are looking strong this season so new york flash are going to need all the star players the team can get. Abby Wambach last year was named player of the league twice.. and notched up plenty of assists and more importantly GOALS! something the new york flash seem to be lacking at the moment. The game on Saturday is a home game for the New york team and will be at the Sahlens stadium 7.pm!
Portland Thorns FC are currently second in the league under Seattle Reign... whereas new york flash are trialling behind in 6th position but there are still plenty more games to be played and plenty more points to be grabbed so anything could happen and it could look totally different at the end of the season!
