Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi, 24, who presently plays for Union Berlin of Germany have never featured in the Nigeria’s super eagles team at all.
Awoniyi has had a goal involvement in all but one of every game he has played this season. He’s got one goal each in the Bundesliga games against Bayer Leverkusen, Hoffenheim and Borussia Monchengladbach. With this kind of streak, he should be considered as a good addition to the super eagles team.
The 24 years old striker has long desired to play for the Super Eagles and has high hopes that one day, it’ll come to pass.
“I think it is every player’s dream to play for his national team,” he said sometime ago.
“But still you can’t control it and Nigeria is blessed with an abundance of football talents everywhere.
“That’s why I’m a football player and have represented my country in all age grades national teams from the U17 to U23 teams.
“It is good for me to be working hard towards meeting that target.”he concluded.
