The Australian influence has doubled at Vegalta Sendai with Katrina Gorry signing for the Japanese club.
The Westfield Matildas midfielder joins international team-mate Caitlin Foord at the Japanese League outfit.
Gorry – the 2014 AFC Women's Player of the Year – joins Vegalta Sendai from Brisbane Roar’s Westfield W-League side.
“Women's football in Japan [is at a] very high level technically,” Gorry told reporters as she was unveiled at a media conference.
“I want to pour my energy into the team. I want to help [us score] a lot of goals.
“I think that we can be number one,” she said.
“Many friends have already played in the Nadeshiko League and I’ve heard a lot about the league.
Of course, Caitlin is here. [I’m excited that] we are going to play together,” she added.
