Awoniyi Scores His First Goal For Union Berlin

Liverpool loanee, Taiwo Awoniyi on Sunday opened his Union Berlin account in their 2-1 win at FC Cologne.

The 23 years old found the back of the net on 27 minutes, to hand his team the lead in the Bundesliga match day eight encounter at Rhein Energie Stadion in Cologne.

The Nigeria striker outwitted Cologne centre backs before shooting past Horn from close range while Max Kruse scored the winning goal on 72 minutes after Ellyes Skhiri restored parity on 36 minutes for the home team.

Awoniyi was replaced on 73 minutes by Cedric Teuchert in the match that also featured 19-year-old Nigerian striker, Toluwalase Emmanuel Arokodare at the opposite end of the pitch, having being introduced as 93rd minute replacement for Salih Özcan.

It was Awoniyi's third start in six matches for Union Berlin after joining them on a season-long loan in September.

He played last season at Mainz 05, scoring once in 12 cameo appearances.

Sunday's win, fourth in eight matches of the new season, leaves Union Berlin 5th on the log with 15 points, four points adrift of leaders and perennial champions, Bayern Munich.
