Malawi’s Chawinga & Nigeria’s Nnadozie win top awards in France

Malawi striker Tabitha Chawinga has been named the Best Player in the French women’s league while Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnadozie scooped the Best Goalkeeper award.

Chawinga is currently on loan from Chinese club Wuhan Jianghan University and enjoying a remarkable debut campaign at Paris Saint Germain where she became the first Malawian to play and score in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The Malawi captain has been in lethal form in the French Feminine Division this season with 18 goals and 10 assists in 19 league appearances so far.

Chawinga spent last season on loan at Inter Milan with 23 goals in 23 matches in the Serie A Women.

Meanwhile, Super Falcons goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie clinched the Best Goalkeeper in the French women’s league.

The 22-year-old became the first African and Nigerian player to win the Goalkeeper award for her remarkable displays and penalty-saving prowess for Paris FC.

Nnadozie fended off competition from Lyon’s Christiane Endler and Paris Saint-Germain’s Katarzyna Kierdrzynek to win the coveted individual accolade.

Nnadozie’s Paris FC are currently third in the women’s top-flight in France with 11 points behind leaders Lyon and eight points behind second-placed PSG.
