Tabitha Chawinga is a Malawian footballer who has been making waves in the world of women’s football.
Tabitha Chawinga is currently plays as a forward for Inter Milan in the Serie A Women’s League and has been in fine form, having scored an impressive 22 goals in her debut season.
Chawinga’s talent and skill on the pitch have not gone unnoticed, and she has become a dominant force in Italian women’s football. She has been instrumental in many of Inter Milan’s victories this season, and her recent hat-trick against Fiorentina showcased her ability to score goals from a variety of positions and angles.
With her impressive goal-scoring record, Chawinga is a strong contender for the Golden Boot in Italy. If she does win it, she will become the first non-European to claim the crown, which would be a significant achievement for both her and African women’s football.
Chawinga is not the only African woman making her mark in Europe’s top five leagues this season. Zambia’s Rachael Kundananji and Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala have also scored over 20 goals, joining Chawinga on the list of African women’s footballers to cross the 20-goal mark in Europe’s top leagues. Kundananji, who plays in Spain, is currently leading the race for the Spanish Golden Boot, with Oshoala being the current holder.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup is set to take place in the summer of 2023, and defenders will need to be wary of the threat posed by African women’s footballers such as Kundananji and Oshoala, who have proven themselves to be lethal in front of goal. Unfortunately, Chawinga‘s Malawi did not qualify for the tournament, so she won’t have the chance to showcase her attacking prowess on the world stage.
Despite this setback, Chawinga‘s impressive performances in the Serie A Women’s League have cemented her place as one of Africa’s brightest footballing talents. She will undoubtedly continue to be a key player for both Inter Milan and the Malawian national team in the years to come.
