Jennifer Echegini handed late call-up for Super Falcons friendlies vs Haiti and New Zealand

Jennifer Onyi Echegini has been handed a late call-up to join the Super Falcons squad for the International friendlies against Haiti and New Zealand in April.

Her omission raised brows because of the key role she played in helping the Super Falcons defeat Costa Rica 1-0 and end a 7-game winless streak. Jennifer laid on the assist for Esther Okoronkwo to score the winner in the Falcons final game of the Revelation Cup in Mexico.
