WINDHOEK, 30 APR – Senior national team striker, Zenatha Coleman, continues to shine in Spain after netting her seventh goal in 12 matches for Real Zaragoza as they recorded a 2-1 away victory over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
In a match monitored online, Coleman scored her club’s second goal in the 55th minute after Bilbao failed to clear the ball in the penalty area.
This was after Brazilian Darlene de Souza put Zaragoza ahead in the 49th minute.
Bilbao, however, pulled one goal back in the 90th minute through Vanesa Gimbert.
The Namibian striker, who was substituted in the 88th minute, expressed delight at the win, saying the team still harbours ambitions of staying in Spain’s top women’s football league.
“We just need to win these last two matches and then see what happens; maybe a miracle could happen. This weekend we are playing away to Valencia, then next weekend we play Atletico Madrid at home so we will give it our best shot,” Coleman told Nampa via WhatsApp on Sunday.
Coleman, who has scored numerous crucial goals for the side since her transfer to the club in January this year, said she performed “pretty well”.
“Well, I have set myself a target of 10 goals and I am working toward achieving that. With regards to my future, I will wait until the end of the season and see what happens then I will be able to make a decision,” Coleman concluded.
With two matches remaining, Real Zaragoza currently occupy the 15th position on the log comprised of 16 teams. The team would have to win their remaining fixtures and hope that other results go their way if they are to avoid relegation this season.
