Awoniyi’s strike earn Mouscron draw against Standard Liege


Former Flying Eagles forward Taiwo Awoniyi, continues to knock the door for the Super Eagles entry, through his performances in the Belgian league for Royal Excel Mouscron.

The 21-year old striker was on hand on Friday night to rescue point for Mouscron who held its host Standard Liege to a 1-1 draw.

The host took the lead in the 54th minute through Razvan Marin but it took Awoniyi six minutes to level the game for the away side.

Awoniyi has now scored 6 goals in 7 matches for Mouscron in the Jupiler league.

It’s yet to be seen if the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will give Awoniyi a call up to the national team in the dead rubber AFCON qualifier against Seychelles.
