Chiamaka Nnadozie, a 23-year-old Nigerian international goalkeeper, has made history by becoming the first African and Nigerian player to be named the best goalkeeper in the French D1 Arkema women’s league.

Nnadozie’s outstanding performances this season, including her impressive penalty-saving skills, have solidified her position as one of the world’s top goalkeepers.

Pierre Ferracci, president of Nnadozie’s club Paris FC, praised her achievement, saying, “She deserves it, and her exceptional Champions League performance, including her penalty-saving heroics, made her stand out.”
