Super Falcon’s Nnadozie bags another award in France

Breaking barriers and rewriting history, Chiamaka Nnadozie has solidified her legacy by becoming the first African, hailing from Nigeria to clinch the prestigious National Union of Professional Footballers, UNFP, award for the best goalkeeper in the French women’s league.

Nnadozie was recognised for his sterling displays for Paris FC in the 2023/24 season.

The Nigeria international beat a strong field that included Olympic Lyon’s Christiane Endler, Katarzyna Kiedrzynek of Paris SG, FC Fleury’s Chloe N’Gazi and Kinga Szemik of Stade de Reims to the individual accolade.
