    She is surely becoming notorious for saving penalty kicks.

    —- vs France at the 2019 WWC.
    —- vs Canada at the 2023 WWC.
    —- vs Cote d’Ivoire in the AWCON qualifiers
    —- vs Cameroon (twice) at the 2019 AAG.

    Quite unfortunately, she couldn’t help us vs Morrocco at the AWCON and vs England at the WWC.

    Chiamaka Nnadozie, the next best thing to happen to our female football development.

    Chiamaka must be in contention for the Africa Women’s Footballer of the Year. She should have saved one or two penalties in that shootout against England instead of harassing Arsenal Women

    • Lol. Fear God oh. The same penalty kicks English media made fun with the fastest speeds taken by their players especially the last one?
