Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Shelina Zadorsky has been named Canada Soccer’s Player of the Month for February.
The 28-year-old played in all three of her country’s matches at the 2021 SheBelieves Cup, steering a youthful and inexperienced defensive line through the tournament.
Zadorsky’s performances at last month’s four-team tournament have been recognised with the defender being named the Canada Soccer Player of the Month. FA Women’s Super League Full-Time learnt of the news via an official Canada Soccer press release earlier this evening.
The centre-back played every minute of 2021 SheBelieves Cup football for Bev Priestman’s side. In her nation’s opening game, Zadorsky played her part in a defence which limited world champions the United States to scoring just the one goal. Canada went one better with Zadorsky at the heart of their defence in the second game, beating Argentina 1-0 before a poor first half showing against Brazil saw them lose their final game 2-0.
Despite Canada finishing third of the four nations participating at the tournament, head coach Priestman has been vocal about the performances of Zadorsky, sending plenty of praise her way.
For her club, Zadorsky has lost her last three games in a Spurs shirt but she will be hoping to help her side change that record when they face Brighton & Hove Albion in their next match on Sunday.
