The Nigerian international, who joined the French club from Rivers Angels in 2020, could not stop the rampant Chelsea from scoring four goals in the first half at the Stade Charlety Stadium, Footballrover reports
The result meant that Paris FC, who had impressed in the qualifiers by eliminating Arsenal and Wolfsburg, failed to advance to the quarterfinals of the competition.
They finished third in Group D with seven points, four behind second-placed Häcken and 14 behind Chelsea, who topped the group with a perfect record.
Nadozie, who has 18 caps for the Super Falcons, expressed her disappointment on her X page (formerly Twitter) after the game. She wrote:
“Gutted that our Champions League journey has come to an end. Proud of how far we’ve come, lots of incredible memories I will never forget in my life. The only impossible journey is the one you never begin. We will be back better and stronger, Allez Paris FC.”

The 23-year-old keeper, who was part of Nigeria’s squad at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, has been a regular starter for Paris FC this season.
She has kept six clean sheets in 15 league games, helping her team to fourth place in Division 1 Féminine.
Paris FC will now focus on their domestic campaign as they aim to secure a European spot for next season. They will face Bordeaux in their next league game on Sunday.
Chelsea, on the other hand, will look forward to the knockout stage draw, which will take place on February 9.
The English champions, who reached the final last year, are among the favourites to win the trophy this time.
