Chiamaka Nnadozie has been named the best goalkeeper in Africa and the 14th best goalkeeper in the World by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).
The 19-year-old Super Falcons goalkeeper caught the eye of fans and critics at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France earlier this year, playing in three games for the Super Falcons including the 2-0 win over South Korea where she became the youngest ever goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet in a Women’s World Cup game.
Her performance this year also earned her a nomination in the Confederation of African Football shortlist for the African Women’s Player of the Year, alongside 3 time winner Asisat Oshoala and Forward, Uchenna Kanu.
Chiamaka Nnadozie currently plays in the Nigeria Women’s football League for Rivers Angels but is reported to be in talks for a move to Wolfsburg in the German Women’s Bundesliga.
