Malawi national women’s football team Captain, Tabitha Chawinga, sustained her great performance in China after scoring a brace to motivate her club Jiangsu Sunning to a 4-2 victory over Wuhan Chedu Jiangda in the 2019 FA Cup on Saturday.
Sunning went through 10-2 on aggregate and will face Shanghai Rural Commercial Bank next week.
Tabitha exposed her excitement after helping her club achieve the feat in one month.
“It always feels great to reach a cup final. Our performance was excellent and we look forward to winning the final. We are going to give it our best shot to emerge victorious,” Tabitha said.
Tabitha is expected to be part of the She-Flames squad to face Kenya in the second round of the 2020 Olympic Games qualifiers.
Malawi defeated Mozambique 14-1 over two legs, with Tabitha and her young sister Temwa reading the onslaught.
Tabitha was named Chinese Women’s Footballer of the Year last season after a solid performance.
She also won the Golden Boot award in the Chinese Women’s Super League with 17 goals.
