Portuguese Liga BPI side Sporting Braga have completed the permanent signing of Super Falcons of Nigeria midfield star Peace Efih, on a two-year deal with a 12-month extension option.
The club announced the signing in a statement released on their website.
Efih, 22, joined Sporting Braga from Israeli champions Maccabi Kiryat Gat on Monday afternoon and will don jersey number 25.
“The Nigerian international, only 22 years old, is yet another attacking option for coach Gonçalo Nunes. Peace Efih arrives from Kiryat Gat (Israel) and also has stints at Zaragoza CFF (Spain), Sporting de Huelva (Spain), Edo Queens (Nigeria) and River Angels (Nigeria).
“The forward was present in the last edition of the Women’s CAN with Nigeria, having scored a goal against Burundi. Peace Efih already works with the rest of the SC Braga squad and may be an option for next Sunday’s game against CA Ouriense.”
In the 2021-22 season, Efih scored 14 goals in 28 appearances and helped the club to a domestic double.
