Chicago’s Yuki Nagasato Voted NWSL Player of the Week

Chicago – The Chicago Red Stars announced today that Yuki Nagasato was voted the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Player of the Week for Week 3 of the 2019 NWSL campaign.  

 This marks Nagasato’s second Player of the Week selection of her career after receiving the honor for Week 10 of the 2018 NWSL season.  

On Sunday afternoon, Chicago defeated Reign FC 3-0 at SeatGeek Stadium behind a huge performance from Nagasato who finished with one goal and one assist. This season, Nagasato currently is second in the league in goals (3) and third in assists (2).  

The Japanese international helped put the Red Stars on the board in the 13th minute when she played in Casey Short on the attack, who would chip Reign FC goalkeeper Lydia Williams. Just minutes into the second half, Nagasato would push Chicago to victory with a goal that’s nominated for NWSL Goal of the Week 

 Chicago (1-0-2; 5 points) has a quick turnaround from their Sunday performance as the team travels to Utah for a match between the current number two and three in the NWSL on Friday, May 3. Kickoff is slated for 8:30 p.m. CT and will be aired on NBC Sports Chicago.
