Nigeria forward Toni Payne took her Sevilla goal tally to three in all competitions this season by ending her five-match drought in a 2-1 defeat to Tenerife in the week.
She was brought as a second half substitute and eventually struck at the death but her effort could not rescue her side from a defeat at Estadio Jesús Navas. Despite Sevilla’s winless streak extended to five, Payne managed to end the year with yet another goal.
With her latest goal, Payne is the top goalscorer for Sevilla this term with three, one ahead of teammates Elisa del Estal and Jessica Martínez.
The US-born winger made her first ever competitive outing with Nigeria in October when they edged Ghana to a 2-1 aggregate win in reaching the second round of the TotalEnergies Africa Women’s Cup of Nations qualifiers.
