Ifunanyachi Achara - Greg Vanney - Toronto FC


Toronto FC have signed winger Ifunanyachi Achara, the club announced Friday. Achara was selected with the No. 25 overall selection in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft.

Achara, 22, has enjoyed a stellar preseason, with three goals in four matches. The Nigeria native spent four seasons at Georgetown University, where he captained his side to a NCAA National Championship this fall. He had six goals and five assists in 15 appearances this year.

“Achara has had a terrific preseason. He works hard, is dynamic offensively and has a great way about him where he fits very well within the group,” TFC GM Ali Curtis said in a statement. “We’re excited about adding him to the team as we feel he has a lot of potential.”

Achara joins a long list of wingers on the senior roster. TFC open their season on February 29 against the San Jose Earthquakes.
