Chisomo Kazisonga has become the second Malawian female football export overseas after Tabitha Chawinga.
The women national football team star has signed a one-year contract with Austrian Women Bundesliga champions SV Nosv Naulengbach.
Kazisonga could not hide her excitement in an interview from Vienna this week.
“I thank God for all this. He is the one who has made it happen for me,” said Kazisonga.
The Austrian top league is set to kickoff in August and Kazisonga said she will work extra hard in order to impress further.
The former Lilongwe-based Skippers FC signed as a free agent.
National Women Football Committee (NWFC) chairperson Severia Chalira described the development as a huge boost for Malawi women football.
“It shows that we are making strides and not far from now, we should be able to compete with the best on the continent,” said Chalira.
Apart from Chawinga who is starring in the second-tier Swedish league, Malawi also has Loveness Nyakamera who plays in South Africa.
