After a 3-3 draw at home in the second round first leg match against last season’s runners-up Wolfsburg, Paris FC won 2-0 in Germany Wednesday to qualify for the group stage of the competition.
Paris thus advanced 5-3 on aggregate after they also eliminated Arsenal in the previous round.
Nnadozie saved a penalty to deny home team Wolfsburg a much-needed equalizer with Paris leading 1-0 by the hour.
It was the defining moment of the match.
She is now trending on social media after being widely rated ahead of Super Eagles fumbling goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.
