Sweden based Malawian women’s football professional Tabitha Chawinga put up a spirited performance on Saturday by scoring seven goals to inspire her team Krokom/Dvarsatts to a 12-1 victory over Domare in the country’s third tier league.
Chawinga is in the bid to win the Golden Boot Award after taking the tally to 36 goals for her Krokom/Dvarsatts with the second top goal score having 24 goals.
The former DD Sunshine players attributed the feat to Divine Intervention.
“We have won the game 12-1 and I have scored seven goals. Praise God for making it possible for me to score the goals,” she said in an interview with Nyasa Times.
She said Krokom/Dvarsatts have one game in to wrap up the season but could miss out on promotion being on the fourth position.
Chawinga said the performance on her debut professional deal was a sign of greater things to come.
“I am optimistic that I will get some better deals for bigger clubs because I am still young,” she said.
The nimble-footed player also saluted David Dube, director of her former Malawian club DD Sunshine for being helpful to clinch the deal.
Dube is also Football Association of Malawi executive member, who has been one of the pioneers in promoting and developing women’s football in the Malawi.
