Super Falcons of Nigeria goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnadozie, has become the first African and Nigerian player to be crowned the best goalkeeper in the French D1 Arkema (women’s league).

The 23-year-old shot-stopper cemented her status as one of the best goalkeepers in the world following her remarkable achievements and heroic penalty-savings this season for Paris FC.

Nnadozie beat out stiff competition from Olympic Lyon’s Christiane Endler and Katarzyna Kiedrzynek of Paris SG to claim the coveted individual accolade.

“It’s very pleasing because she deserves it and she achieved an exceptional Champions League and not only on penalties,” said Pierre Ferracci, the president of Nnadozie’s club, Paris FC.

“She is adorable. It is deserved. We know that she will be courted this summer, but we will try to keep her,” Pierre Ferracci added.

Paris FC currently sits third in the league with 42 points, eight points behind their local rivals Paris Saint-Germain and a further 11 points away from the league leaders, Lyon.
