Also, her 57 goals during the 2018 season were also an NAIA record.

She played for Southeastern Fire from 2016 to 2018 signed for Sevilla in 2020 before eventually ending up at Linköpings also this year.

In years past, the All Sports Awards and Hall of Fame ceremony were held in person at the RP Funding Center, but this year, it was done online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kanu represented Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup and the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

She made her senior debut on 8 April 2019 in a 1–2 friendly loss to Canada and was also in the Falcons squad that featured at the women’s World Cup in France last year.
