Super Eagles goalie, Chiamaka Nnadozie has been crowned Africa’s best at the CAF Awards,

The Paris FC superstar  beat fellow goalkeepers in the form of Moroccan shot-stopper Khadija El-Rmichi and South Africa’s Andile Olaminii to win the award on Monday, December 11.

Nnadozie showcased her heroics in the Women’s World Cup match against  Canada, making three saves, including stopping a 50th-minute penalty from Christine Sinclair with the game ending in goaless draw.

The 23-year-old, in her acceptance speech, said, ”I just want to use this great opportunity to say a very great thank you to the organisers and also for remembering the female goalkeeper this year.”

“I also want to say a very big thank you to the Nigerian football president for everything he has done in the Nigerian league and female football. I am a product of Nigerian female football.”

“Also, thank you to my club, Paris FC for all the encouragement and thanks to everyone who voted for me and who nominated me.”
