Malawian sole European women football export Tabitha Chawinga scored in her debut for Kvarnsveden when she scored a double in their 4-0 win over Lidköping last Sunday.
It was Chawinga’s first game after signing for the second-tier league (Elittan) side and her coach Jonas Björkegren waxed lyrical of her exploits.
Kvarnsveden, who are third on the standings, were winless ahead of the match having drawn 0-0 started with Drew on April 12 during when the ex-DD Sunshine forward was held up by visa delays.
“She is good to have in the team. We get an option if we want to attack because she is so fast. She offers an offensive game and it will be interesting to see how we use it going forward. She is a player probably every team wants,” Björkegren told a Swedish website Elite Ettan on Wednesday.
The coach acknowledged the impact of Chawinga who he signed from third tier league’s Krokom / Dvärsätt last season when she was top-scorer with 39 in 18 games.
During Sunday’s match, Europe football website kr.soccerway.com further reports that after Chawinga had put Kvarnsveden ahead on 20 minutes, Lovisa Lennartsson added the second before the half hour mark.
Lisa Lundin made it three goals after break, before the Malawian forward rounded off the scoring with a late scorcher.
Now, Chawinga hopes Kvarnsveden can win the championship as they have four points from two games; two points behind leaders Djurgården and second-positioned Hovås Billdal.
Both teams have six points while being separated by goal aggregate. However, the going is bleak for Lidköping who are searching for their first win in two games.
