China-based women’s football icon Tabitha Chawinga at the weekend took her tally to 10 goals in the Chinese Women Super league.
Chawinga scored a brace at the weekend as her team Jiangsu Suning thrashed Changchun 5-1.
She leads the scorers’ chart, but the one breathing down her neck is two goals short.
Jiangsu Suning now have 30 points from 11 games, eight points clear of second-placed Shanghai.
“I thank God that everything is going according to plan.
“If we can keep up the momentum, I have no doubt that we will win the title this season.
“I will keep on working hard so that I meet my target of scoring 25 goals. It is important that I keep on scoring because the gap with the other scorers is not wide,” she said in an interview on Monday.
Chawinga won the Golden Boot Award in her maiden season in China with 17 goals, but her team finished second.
She also won four other awards, including the Player of the Year accolade.
The 22-year old prolific forward is considered one of the best female strikers in the world.
