Super Falcons’ Echegini Joins Juventus

Juventus (Women) have completed the signing of highly rated Super Falcons star, Jennifer Echegini from Florida State Seminoles.

The Netherlands-born Nigeria international has now  become the latest addition to Joe Montemurro’s side.

The midfielder signed a contract until 30 June, 2026 and will wear the number 26 shirt.

Echegini was a key player for the Seminoles, where she played over the last few seasons, gaining everyone’s attention thanks to her talent while also earning a call-up to the Super Falcons.

In 2023, she scored 16 goals, the eighth-best result ever in the history of her university, and 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.
