Super Falcons goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie expressed her pride following her team’s victory in their season opener of the French Division 1 Feminine at the Stade Charlety stadium.
Paris FC won their first league fixture to secure their first three points of the 2022/23 season after beating Rodez 2-0.
Nnadozie couldn’t hide her happiness and the 21-year-old took to her social media pages to celebrate the win and the clean sheet.
She wrote, “+3, clean sheet, good way to start the season.”
Nnadozie has always been consistent for both country and club. She was awarded the 2021/22 Bruno Martini Award for Goalkeeping Revelation of The Season in the French women’s topflight league.
Her performances in goal helped her side qualify for this season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League after finishing third on the table, as she kept 13 clean sheets in 19 league appearances for the French women.
For Nigeria, Nnadozie made a significant impact by keeping clean sheets in both legs of their second-round qualifier against Ivory Coast and saved a penalty in the second leg.
“When the referee called the penalty, I told myself that this is the time for me to save the team. And I did exactly what I told myself,” Nnadozie told ESPN.
The Nigeria international kept two clean sheets in two appearances at the group stages of the African Women’s Cup of Nations in July and kept one clean sheet in the knockout stages before a mistake cost the team a spot in the final as they lost out on penalties to beaten finalist Morocco.
