Chawinga celebrates after scoring a goal for Inter Milan Women

On Oshoala, ESPN says the star has rediscovered her fine form after recovering from an injury.

“This month’s Power Rankings sees an old-timer [Oshoala] return to the top of the standings, while players based in England, Portugal, Italy, and France are rewarded for their work, as well as some of the usuals plying their trade in Spain,” reads part of the statement.

Spain-based Zambian Rachel Kundananji who topped November 2022 rankings has dropped to third, while Tabitha’s sister, Temwa Chawinga who was in third position in November misses out on the top 10 in the December rankings.

The Wuhan Jiangda striker, who won the golden boots for the Chinese Women’s Super League and Chinese National Cup said it is not surprising that she is out of the top 10 because the Chinese Super league concluded in November.
