Copper Queens Skipper Barbra Banda Scores 15th Goal in Shanghai RCB’s Hard-Fought Win
In a thrilling display of skill and determination, Copper Queens skipper Barbra Banda showcased her scoring prowess once again for her Chinese club Shanghai RCB, securing a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Beijing Beikong in round 19 of the Chinese Women’s Super League.
Banda made a significant impact just 11 minutes into the game, netting her team’s opening goal and taking her seasonal tally to an impressive 15 goals. This remarkable achievement solidifies her position as one of the leading goal-scorers in the highly competitive league.
With three league games remaining before the season concludes, Shanghai RCB currently occupies the second position on the log with 48 points, trailing seven points behind leaders Wuhan Chegu JHUN, who have accumulated 55 points.
Barbra Banda’s stellar form is undoubtedly a welcome boost for the Copper Queens, especially as she is expected to join the national team’s camp next week for the WAFCON qualifiers match against Angola. The first leg of the qualifiers is scheduled to take place in Angola on November 29th, with the second leg set for December 5th in Zambia.
As one of the most trusted attackers for the Copper Queens, Banda’s current goal-scoring spree adds an extra layer of confidence to the national team’s offensive capabilities. The captain’s form, coupled with her leadership qualities, makes her a key asset as Zambia aims to secure a spot in the upcoming WAFCON tournament.
Fans of both Shanghai RCB and the Copper Queens will be eagerly anticipating Banda’s continued stellar performances as she navigates through the final matches of the Chinese Women’s Super League and transitions back to represent her nation in the WAFCON qualifiers.
