Super Falcons goalkeeper, Nnadozie reveals her ordeals with her dad while making an effort to play football. In an exclusive interview with Osasuo on Guardian Sports, Chiamaka asserted that her mum had to lie sometimes as a form of shielding her from her dad while she goes to play football.
Chiamaka said at some point, she had to leave home to her aunt’s place as advised by her mum as an alternative way to shield her from her dad’s punishments.
Part of her revelation during the interview:
“It is thanks to my mum, that I have a career. She really stood by me. Sometimes, when I went to play football, she had to tell lies to my Dad that she had sent me on an errand, so he would not know I was playing, as he was against it. She would say I had gone to my aunt’s house or something like that, just to protect me. Not every mum would do what she has done, so that I can play football. I really appreciate her.”
Chiamaka bagged Woman of the Match award in Falcon’s first World Cup tie against Canada, she rose to the occasion of salvaging a point for the ten Women Falcons – saving a penalty in the late minutes. She has kept two clean sheets in her three group games in the ongoing.
The PSG goalkeeper began her career with Rivers Angels from where she moved to Europe to join PSG in 2020.
She has been capped 23 times by the Super Falcons since making a senior debut in 2018.
