Amaechi Igwe (born May 20, 1988 in Belmont, California) is an American soccer player who is currently out of contract.





Igwe played college soccer at Santa Clara University, where he played forward and scored five goals and had three assists to finish third on the team in scoring. Both his sister, Chioma, and his older brother, Kelechi, played at Santa Clara. He only played one season at Santa Clara before signing a generation Adidas contract with Major League Soccer.


Igwe was drafted in the 1st round, 12th overall in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft by New England Revolution. During the 2007 season, Igwe appeared regularly for the Revolution reserves squad - scoring one goal in eleven appearances - but did not make an appearance for the first team in league play. He made his MLS debut on April 9, 2008 against the Kansas City Wizards. Igwe saw inconsistent playing time at left back during the 2008 and 2009 seasons, but failed to break into the starting lineup due to the presence of Jay Heaps.


Igwe has represented the United States at the youth international level, and was named to the US squad for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
