Malawi Women’s Football National Team striker, Temwa Chawinga, has expressed disappointment with the lack of support for women’s football in the country, attributing it to the underperformance of the national team.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with BBC’s Sportsworld, the surprise top scorer of the 2023 world football season highlighted the challenges faced by the team despite boasting highly skilled professional players.

Chawinga lamented, “The country doesn’t prioritize women’s football; all the attention is directed towards men’s football. Unfortunately, the lack of support has hindered the women’s national team’s participation in Olympic qualifiers.”

Despite these obstacles, the former DD Sunshine striker, who recently signed a new two-year deal  with American side Kansas City in January this year, remains hopeful.

She believes that her own success, alongside that of Tabitha Chawinga, can catalyse increased support for women’s football in Malawi.

“I am confident that our achievements can spark a positive change, leading to greater support for women’s football. It’s essential for us to nurture a strong women’s football team,” she added.

Chawinga’s remarkable performance saw her scoring 63 goals across all competitions, including for the Chinese Women’s Super League side Wuhan Jianghan University FC and her national team, surpassing Ronaldo’s tally by nine goals.
