“It feels great to score and help my team collect full points. However, I am not focusing on personal glory. My target is to help my team to successfully defend the league title,” she said.

Wuhan are also on course to defending the title after starting the five-team play-offs with a win.

The teams fighting for the title in the play-offs are Wuhan, Shengli, Zhouyue, Jiangsu and Guangzhou Meizhou Hakka.

At Sunning, she won the Chinese Women’s Footballer of the Year accolade in 2018 and 2019.

The former DD Sunshine star also helped the club win a treble for the first time in its history.
