Kosovare Asllani has officially been named the Women’s Forward of the Year at the Swedish football awards Gala ‘Fotbollsgalan.’

Asllani, along with fellow CD Tacon attacker Sofia Jakobsson, were nominated for the Best Footballer of the Year award in addition to the Forward of the Year.

This recognition highlights that CD Tacon’s offense has been the least of their problems of late. Possessing the likes of Jakobsson and Asllani, in addition to Jessica Martínez and Chioma Ubogagu, has meant that Tacon’s offense has moved along at a respectable rate despite collective struggles moving the ball towards goal.

It is in defense where CD Tacon’s primary woes lie and the club would do well to invest in a similar caliber of player in that area in the near future. For the moment, Tacon lie in the relegation zone, having conceded 24 goals in 8 matches — the most in the Primera Iberdrola by a significant margin.
