Echegini told EaglesTracker after the 2023 Fifa Women's World Cup: "Growing up I was only a Chelsea fan even though I lived in the Netherlands and I didn't know much, and was in a completely different country, I just loved Chelsea.

"I started with a local football team over there in the Netherlands, stayed there till I was 11 years old, was playing with boys, then I moved to England, to London specifically, then I joined Charlton, Millwall. I was at Arsenal as well until age 18 then I came to United States."

Echegini made a significant impact in the second half of last season, scoring 10 goals in fourteen appearances for Juventus.
