  • Talented Super Falcons goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnadozie has emerged victorious in the highly anticipated Golden Gloves award at the EaglesTracker Awards 2023.
  • Recognized for her exceptional skills and remarkable performances, Nnadozie secured an impressive tally of 13 clean sheets in 23 games for Paris FC, firmly establishing herself as the safest pair of hands in the country.

Throughout the season, Nnadozie showcased her unwavering abilities by featuring in all of Paris FC's 21 league matches, amassing a commendable playing time of 1,845 minutes.

Demonstrating an exceptional level of proficiency, she conceded a mere 17 goals, playing a pivotal role in her club's triumphant third-place finish in France's elite women's division.

As a result, Paris FC earned a well-deserved opportunity to compete in the upcoming UEFA Women's Champions League.

The journey to claim this prestigious accolade was not without challenges, as Nnadozie faced tough competition from other notable contenders, including the dynamic Super Eagles duo of Francis Uzoho and Adebayo Adeleye.

Looking ahead, the 22-year-old prodigy aims to carry her exceptional form into the forthcoming FIFA Women's World Cup, scheduled to commence in July in Australia and New Zealand.

Her exceptional performances have earned her a well-deserved place in coach Ralph Waldrum's 23-woman squad, where she is expected to assume the crucial role of the team's number-one goalkeeper.
