Liverpool Loanee Taiwo Awoniyi Back In Favour At NEC Nijmegen


Dutch side NEC Nijmegen suffered a big blow in their bid to beat the drop to the second division after losing 0-3 away from home to FC Twente at the De Grolsch Veste Stadium.


The loss compounded the woes of the team as they slipped to 17th on log just a spot and five point behind basement club Go Ahead Eagles with five games left to play in the regular season.

However for their Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi who is on a season long loan from English side Liverpool he has regained his spot in the team with three starts to his name from their last three games, after previously failing to play in nearly all of their games last month.

Awoniyi lasted the entire duration of their game against Twente, and was joined in the game by fellow Nigerian forward Arnold Danjuma Groenveld who was introduced with around 15 minutes left to play in the tie.

19 year old Awoniyi is still searching for his first goal of the season after playing in 16 games, a statistic which is shocking owing to how deadly the striker is when it comes to burying balls in the back of the net during his days with the Nigeria U-17, 20 & 23.
