The Super Falcons goalkeeper, Chiamaka Nnaedozie made history in the game against South Korea as she became the youngest goalkeeper, at 18 years and 186 days to keep a clean sheet in the women’s world cup.

Chiamaka was brought into the South Korean game after Falcons coach, Dennerby decided to start the lad over the number one goalkeeper Oluehi.

The youngster didn’t disappoint as she put up a five-star performance to give Nigeria the 2-0 win over South Korea.

The Falcons scored their goals through an own goal and a superb strike from Assisat Oshaola.

The Falcons play France next and Nnaedozie seems to have made a claim as the favourite to start the game.
