Chiamaka Nnadozie saves 5th UEFA Women’s Champions League penalty in Paris FC win over Hacken

In a nail-biting UEFA Women’s Champions League clash between Paris FC and Hacken, Super Falcons goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie made a 5th penalty save to help her team to secure a vita point.

The 23-year-old Nigerian shot-stopper showcased her goalkeeping prowess by saving a crucial penalty, securing a vital point for her team and keeping their quarterfinal hopes alive.

Nnadozie who was named Africa’s best women’s goalkeeper of the year, continues to be a game-changer for Paris FC.

Her exceptional performance against BK Hacken was another reason why she is currently considered as one of the top goalkeepers in women’s football.

The big moment arrived in the 21st minute when Nnadozie denied Rosa Kafaji from the penalty spot, recording her fifth penalty save in just eight matches in the Women’s Champions League.

This extraordinary feat adds to her impressive list of accomplishments, having made key saves against formidable opponents like Arsenal Women, Wolfsburg, and Real Madrid in previous matches.

In the match against Hacken, the Super Falcons left-back not only showcased her penalty-stopping abilities but also made six crucial saves, completed 17 recoveries, and touched the ball 46 times, underlining her all-around goalkeeping skills.

Paris FC heads into the final group stage match against Chelsea Women with hopes of securing a spot in the quarterfinals.
