Awoniyi Urges Nigeria To Beat Holland To Dutch-Nigerian Teammate Arnaut Groeneveld


Nigeria youth international Taiwo Awoniyi has made a call to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to push for Dutch-Nigerian forward Arnaut Groeneveld Danjuma.


Awoniyi who is on loan to NEC Nijmegen from English Premier League giants Liverpool is teammate to the 20 year old forward who was born in Nigeria to a Dutch mother and a Nigerian father.

The Former PSV youth teamer has made four appearances for NEC Nijmegen in the league, but Awoniyi say he has seen enough of him in training to judge his abilities.

” He ( Arnaut) is a great talent. I hope he plays for Nigeria ahead of the Netherlands. We train together on a regular so I know what he can do. He is a prospect we can’t afford to lose”, Awoniyi told

” On my part I have done my bit in making him see the advantage in playing for Nigeria. What is left is for the NFF to make it official”.
