2023 WWC: Nnadozie Named Woman Of The Match In Falcons’ Draw Vs Canada

Chiamaka Nnadozie has been named Woman of the Match following Nigeria’s thrilling 0-0 draw against Canada on Thursday.

The Paris FC of France goalkeeper produced a stunning save to deny Christine Sinclair from the penalty spot five minutes after the break.

The Olympic champions were awarded a penalty early in the second half after Francisca Ordega was adjudged to have committed a foul inside the box.

A number of Super Falcons players put up impressive displays in the game but Nnadozie, who captained the team in the absence of Onome Ebi was picked by FIFA at the Star of the Match.

The Super Falcons will hope to build on the impressive performance in their next game against co-hosts Australia.

The encounter is slated for the Brisbane Stadium on Thursday, July 27.
