[NWSL TRANSACTIONS] Sonia became the third Spaniard to join Western New York, joining Vicky Losada, Week 1's NWSL Player of the Week, and Adriana Martin on the Flash. She comes to the Flash fresh off a two-goal performance on Sunday when she helped Barcelona defeat Atletico Feminas, 3-0, to claim the club’s third straight Primera Division title.

NWSL Spaniards:
Sonia, WNY Flash
Veronica Boquete, Portland
Vicky Losada, WNY Flash
Adriana Martin, WNY Flash

The Barca title was the sixth consecutive league title Sonia was a part of, as the Vallecas native also won three titles with Rayo Vallecano.

“We’re excited to have Sonia as a part of our squad and delighted that we were able to, again, work with FC Barcelona to bring another fantastic player to Western New York,” Flash general manager and head coach Aaran Lines said. “Sonia is another tremendous addition with enormous individual quality that we look forward to integrating into our team concept in 2014.”

Vicky, who also arrived at the Flash from Barcelona, Adriana and Sonia all played for Spain at Euro 2013 along with the fourth Spaniard in the NWSL, Portland-bound Veronica Boquete. Vicky, Sonia and Boquete all played for Spain in its recent 2015 Women's World Cup qualifiers. Spain leads its group with six wins and a draw.
