Confederation of African Football (CAF) has described Chiamaka Nnadozie as the Super Falcons saviour in their opening game at the 2023 FIFA women’s World Cup.
In Friday’s Group B game in Melbourne, a resolute Falcons side held Olympic champions Canada to a goalless draw.
Nnadozie was brilliant for the Falcons as she made important saves in the one-side tie.
The 22-year-old then capped her superb performance with a 50th minute penalty save.
Praising the shot stopper for her heroics, CAF wrote on their women’s football Twitter handle:”Super Falcons‘ saviour!
“Chiamaka Nnadozie excelled in her nation’s World Cup opener with a saved penalty, a clean sheet, and a Player of the Match award! 👏“
Nnadozie will hope to help the Falcons overcome co-hosts Australia in their second Group B game on Thursday, July 27.
