Super Falcons safe hands, Chiamaka Nnadozie has scooped the best goalkeeper award in the French Ligue.
The Bruno Martini award for Goalkeeping Revelation of the year is sponsored by the French Association of Professional Football Goalkeeper Coaches (AEGB).
The 21-year-old beat Mylene Chavas of Girondis Bordeaux, Olympique Lyon’s Christiane Endler, GPSO 92 ISSY’s Cosette Morche and Barbora Votikova of Paris Saint-Germain to the individual accolade.
She kept 13 clean sheets in 19 league appearances for Paris FC in the French top-flight.
The goalie’s exploits also helped her club, Paris FC, qualify for next season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League.
”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.
