Super Falcons goalkeeper Nnadozie wins top award in France

Chiamaka Nnadozie of the Super Falcons has been named the best goalkeeper in the French Ligue.

The French Association of Professional Football Goalkeeper Coaches sponsors the Bruno Martini award for Goalkeeping Revelation of the Year (AEGB).

The 21-year-old defeated Mylene Chavas of Girondis Bordeaux, Christiane Endler of Olympique Lyon, Cosette Morche of GPSO 92 ISSY, and Barbora Votikova of Paris Saint-Germain to win the individual prize.

In 19 league games for Paris FC in France’s top level, she maintained 13 clean sheets.

Her efforts also helped her club, Paris FC, qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League next season.

”I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to the AEGB Football Association France, for this great award. A special thanks to Paris FV, you guys made it possible,” she said after receiving the award.

Nnadozie linked up with Paris FC from Nigerian outfit Rivers Angels in 2020 and has made 34 league appearances for the club.

She is the youngest goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, a feat achieved against Korea in France in 2019, aged 18 and 186 days.

The Super Falcons won the game by 2-0.
