Malawi Women’s National Football Team defenders Chimwemwe Madise and Patricia Nyirenda continue to hog the limelight in Zambia Women’s Super Division.
The two players joined Lusaka Dynamos on three-year deals in May after impressing during the 2020 Cosafa Women’s Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.
The Malawians are proving to be game-changers as they have inspired Dynamos to second position in the division.
Madise is particularly popular with the fans who have nicknamed her “The Malawian Roberto Carlos”.
“Madise is an undisputed left back for both the Scorchers and Lusaka Dynamos Ladies. She has appeared in every game since getting registered in the Zambian league,” the club’s website reports.
In an interview from Lusaka Thursday, Madise said she had settled well in Zambia.
“I am enjoying my game. This is one of the best teams in Zambia and I promise to do my best so that we win the league title this season,” she said.
There are reports that Nyirenda has been named as captain but the star was not readily available for comment.
Zesco Ndola Girls top the standings with 39 points from 17 matches whereas Dynamos are second with 36 points from 16 assignments.
Madise and Nyirenda are reliable players for Malawi, having helped the team to reach the semifinals of the Cosafa Cup last year after beating Zambia 1-0.
The Scorchers failed to progress to the final after losing 6-2 to hosts South Africa.
