Awoniyi's Brace Secures Win For Union Berlin Against Mainz

Taiwo Awoniyi on Sunday signalled Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr with a brace for Union Berlin in a 2-1 win at Mainz 05.

The 24 years old U17 World Cup winner who has been scoring consistently for his team, pulled the visitors level on 69 minutes, to cancel out Ingvartsen's 39th minute opener for the home side and made it a brace four minutes later as they secured maximum point in the game week fixture at MEWA ARENA .

The former Liverpool striker has now scored four league goals and as many in UEFA Europa Conference, making a total of seven goals across all competitions this season.

The Ilorin-born needs to double his efforts to wrest the Nigeria number 9 shirt from Victor Osimhen, who has been on a scoring spree for Napoli this season. The former Lille has netted seven times across all competitions for the Azzurri, with six of them coming in his last five matches.

Awoniyi played last season at Union Berlin on loan from Liverpool, with the modest Bundesliga side paying €6.5 million to sign him on a permanent basis on 19 July 2021.
