Malawi women’s national football team’s Europe-based stars, Tabitha and Temwa Chawinga, are expected to be available for the African Women’s 2020 Olympic Games qualifying matches against Mozambique next month.
The two teams meet at home and away on April 1 and 8 2019.
Tabitha has been in form for her Chinese club, Jiang Sunning, scoring 11 goals in three cup games.
Temwa has just returned to Sweden after being delayed by Visa complications.
Tabitha, Temwa and another top She-Flames player Sabina Thom did not play for Malawi at the 2018 Cosafa Women’s Championship due to logistical challenges.
Tabitha on Sunday said she would be available for the match against Mozambique as the Chinese Women’s League kicks off in July 2019.
“We are on break after playing cup games. I am ready to come for the national team assignments, if they [Football Association of Malawi] ask for my release in good time. Temwa has indicated that she will come back from Sweden to play for the national team,” Tabitha said.
Malawi host Mozambique on April 1 followed by the reverse fixture a week later.
