EOS M50 - Shooting in low light with flash and getting a soft portrait every-time

I'd like to know if I am doing something obviously wrong and how to correct it or

is it not possible to get a sharp image with the M50 or with the lens.

I am using "EOS M50", Lens "EF-M15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM"  with a "Godox Thinklite TT350" ON- camera flash with a diffuser ....

I took several pictures in low light @ 1/125, F5.6 and ISO 200.

When I auto focus on the subject's face  using Face detection + Tracking AF mode, the focus rectangle shows up on the face after which I click the picture.

However I am getting a soft image every-time.... Kindly Advise

Sample picture provided... Meta Data below the image.
