The National Women’s Football Association president Suzgo Ngwira has hailed the Chawinga Sisters, Temwa and Tabitha for impressive performance in China.
The Scorchers’ goal poacher, Temwa Chawinga inspired his team, Wohan to a 2022 Chinese Women’s Cup as she also won the golden boot award after scoring six goals in the tournament, beating her blood sister, Tabitha Chawinga.
Temwa bagged a brace as his team, Wuhan thrashed Beijing 3-0 in the Cup final to lift the trophy.
Temwa was excited about the award and the trophy.
“I feel great to win both Cup and the golden boot award. We now shift our focus to defending the League. Beijing beat us in the opening match but it was not a knock-out format as the tournament was played on a league basis and happy with the revenge,” said Temwa.
Temwa has been deployed as a defender in league games and some cup fixtures this season.
Her sister, Tabitha Chawinga has praised Temwa saying she is a great player.
Reacting to the news, National Women’s Football Association Chairperson Suzgo Ngwira says the two are extraordinary talents that Malawi has in its hands.
“It’s not a secret that the two are great talents and they are among the best in the world because the Chinese Women’s League is ranked highly in the world,” said Ngwira.
Ngwira is hopeful that the Chawinga Sisters will transform their Club performance to the Scorchers and help the team qualify for the next edition of the Women’s African Cup of Nations.
Both Temwa and Tabitha are likely not to be part of the Scorchers squad in this year’s Cosafa Cup in South Africa next month due to club commitments.
Wuhan are in impressive form as they are topping the League table with 30 points from 10 games, and a defeat sounds new to them.
