Roord has opened the season in sensational form, scoring hat-tricks in both of Arsenal’s opening WSL fixtures- one against Reading in a 6-1 victory and the other against West Ham in a 9-1 drubbing. Jill also scored the winner for Netherlands against Russia during the international break. Unfortunately, she also picked up a slight knee injury in that game and has missed the last few games.
