Super Falcons goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnadozie has been named the best
goalkeeper in Africa, and the 14th best goalkeeper in the World by the
International Federation of Football History and Statistics.

The 18-year-old who caught the attention of many at the 2019 FIFA
Women’s World Cup in France earlier this year, made three appearances
for the Super Falcons at the tournament including the 2-0 win over South
Korea, where she became the youngest ever goalkeeper to keep a clean
sheet in a Women’s World Cup.

According to the International Federation of Football History and
Statistics, Chiamaka and South Africa’s Andile Dlamini are the only
Africans on the shortlist.

Netherland’s Sari Van Veenendaal who won the best keeper’s award at
the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France, is the Best Goalkeeper of The
Year, followed by France’s Sarah Bouhaddi, who have won the award three
times (2016, 2017, 2018) consecutively.

US keeper Alyssa Naeher next up on the list while Sweden’s Hedvig
Lindahl, Sandra Panos of Spain, Almuth Schult from Germany, Laura
Giuliani of Italy and England’s Karen Bardsley complete the top five
goalkeepers in the world.
