Video: Liverpool ace Taiwo Awoniyi scores first goal for loan club Mainz in Bundesliga clash

Liverpool’s Taiwo Awoniyi has bagged a crucial goal for loan club Mainz in this afternoon’s Bundesliga clash against FC Koln.

After Mainz full-back Bote Baku was slipped in on the wing with a tidy pass from midfield, a low cross was drilled into the middle of the box and Awoniyi was on hand to slot the ball into the back of the net.

The 22-year-old’s effort appeared to take a slight deflection off a defender before it hit the back of the net, but the Nigerian ace has been credited with the effort as it was headed goal-bound anyway.

Awoniyi will have been on Liverpool’s books for five years come this summer, the ace hasn’t had a chance with the Reds due to an inability to secure a UK work permit.

The centre-forward has also had loan spells with FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Gent and two spells with Belgian outfit Royal Excel Mouscron.

Take a look at the ace’s first goal of the season below:
