Elizabeth Addo scores in Jiangsu Suning's triumph

Tabitha Chawinga and Elizabeth Addo were on target as Jiangsu Suning secured a 6-0 win over Wuhan in the Chinese Women's FA Cup semi-final, first leg.

Going into the encounter, Jiangsu were smarting from their first defeat of the year - the 2-1 loss against Shandong in the Chinese Women's Championship two weeks ago.

The Malawi and Ghana internationals were on parade for the entire duration of the one-sided encounter which saw the visitors gain a massive first-leg advantage in Wuhan.

A hat-trick from Chawinga in the first half put the holders in the driving seat before Addo opened her goal account for the club in the second half.

Moments later in the second half, Wu Chengshu and Tang Jiali got on the scoresheet as the visitors completed the rout over Wuhan.

It was Addo's first goal for Jiansgu in three appearances since joining early April, while Chawinga's treble took her goal tally to 16 in seven outings in all competitions this term.
