Nigeria goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnadozie was the heroine as she saved another penalty to help her French side, Paris FC to a 0-0 draw with Swedish outfit, BK Hacken in the group stage of the 2023/2024 UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The former Rivers Angels shotstopper denied Kafaji Rasul Rosa from a 21st-minute penalty spot.
