Copper Queens skipper, Banda, to join US female team, Orlando Pride


Copper Queens skipper, Barbra Banda, is reportedly heading to the United States to join the Orlando Pride.

This was barely a month after teammate, Racheal Kundananji, smashed a world record transfer to Bay FC from Spain’s Madrid CFF.

CBS Sports reported that the Zambia forward Banda would soon join the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), the same division as Kundananji’s team, on a landmark deal that could be record-breaking after including transfer fee, salary and potential bonuses.

The American publication was quoting sources confirming that Orlando Pride would be the landing spot for the Zambian forward.

Banda had rapidly become one of the most exciting attackers in the world since she went on a goal scoring tear during the Tokyo Olympics.

She recently aided her squad in moving another spot closer to the upcoming Paris Olympics, moving into the next qualifying round.

During Olympic qualifiers she made history as the first Zambian player, male or female, to score 50 international goals since Godfrey Ucar Chitalu.

The official record is 79 goals.

She’s joining NWSL from China where she plays for Shanghai Shengli.
