Taiwo Awoniyi becomes first Nigerian player to score a post covid-19 goal

Super Eagles forward Taiwo Awoniyi has bagged a crucial goal for loan club, Mainz, in this afternoon’s Bundesliga clash against FC Koln becoming the first Nigerian to score post covid19.


After Mainz full-back Bote Baku was slipped in on the wing with a tidy pass from midfield, a low cross was drilled into the middle of the box and Awoniyi was on hand to slot the ball into the back of the net.

 

Awoniyi’s effort appeared to take a slight deflection off a defender before it hit the back of the net, but the Nigerian ace has been credited with the effort as it was headed goal-bound anyway.

 

 

Awoniyi will have been on Liverpool’s books for five years come this summer, the ace hasn’t had a chance with the Reds due to an inability to secure a UK work permit.

 

The former U17 World Cup Winner has also had loan spells with FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Gent, and two spells with Belgian outfit Royal Excel Mouscron.
