The stock of Super Falcons goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnadozie, has continued to rise with her nomination for the prestigious Best Goalkeeper of the Season award in the French D1 Akem, the women’s topflight league in France.

The 23-year-old Nnadozie who is CAF Women’s Goalkeeper of the Year in 2023, has again  been nominated for the individual accolade for the second consecutive season.

Unarguably Africa’s best women’s goalkeeper of the moment, Nnadozie has also established herself as one of the best goalkeepers in the French topflight.

The Paris FC shot stopper who has led her team to decent third place on 41 points  from 20 matches this season,  will battle Olympic Lyon’s Christiane Endler and Katarzyna Kiedrzynek of Paris SG for the award.

Nnadozie was voted Player of the Month for March in the French D1 Akem.

She won the Bruno Martini Award for Goalkeeping Revelation of the Season in the French top-flight in the 2021/22 season.

Her heroics at the last FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia didn’t go unnoticed and has maintained momentum. Nnadozie’s feat partly frustrated South Africa’s Banyana Banyana from snatching the ticket to summer’s Women’s Olympic Football Event at Paris 2024.
