Super Falcons Star Echegini Joins Juventus On Two-Year Deal

Juventus have signed Super Falcons midfielder Jennifer Echegini from Florida State Seminoles, in the United States of America.

In a statement on the club’s website, Echegini signed a contract until 30 June 2026.

The 22-year-old was among the finalists of the MAC Hermann, the most prestigious award in US university football.

In December, she won the Honda Sport Award for women’s football and was Most Valuable Player of the ACC Tournament, ACC Offensive Player of the Year and named to the United Soccer Coaches First Team All-American.

She ended 2023 with 16 goals, the eighth best result ever in the history of her university.

Also, she was the first among the ranks of the Florida State Seminoles to reach double figures in goals for multiple seasons in a row since Deyna Castellanos who play for Manchester City.

She was a member of the Super Falcons squad that reached the round of 16 at last year’s FIFA women’s World Cup.

She saw action for the Falcons at the World Cup mostly coming on as a substitute.
