Priscila Borja Moreno (born 28 April 1985) is a Spanish footballer, who plays for Primera División club Atlético Madrid. A fast winger or forward, she has represented the Spain women's national football team since 2011.

Club career[edit]

Coming from the ranks of Seville's CD Hispalis, she moved at 17 to Sabadell, where she won a national Cup. After Sabadell withdrew from the competition in 2005 she moved to Estudiantes Huelva, which disappeared following the end of the season. She then signed for Club Irex Puebla. When Puebla fused with AD Las Mercedes to form Extremadura FCF she returned to Huelva to play for Sporting,[2] and signed for Atlético Madrid in 2009.[3]

International career[edit]

Following an outstanding 2010–11 season with Atlético, Borja was called for the first time by the senior Spanish national team for their first match in 2013 Euro qualifying, against Turkey.[4] Borja started the match and contributed two goals to Spain's 10–1 win.[5]

In June 2013, national team coach Ignacio Quereda confirmed Borja as a member of his 23-player squad for the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 finals in Sweden.[6]
