Nigeria vs Central African Republic: Awoniyi shares secret to Super Eagles call-up


Union Berlin striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, has attributed his recent national team call-up to hard work and dedication.

Awoniyi has netted five times in seven appearances in the 2021/2022 campaign.

The 24-year-old was initially not in coach Gernot Rohr’s plan for the double-header against the Central African Republic in the 2022 World Cup qualifying series.

But he was called up to replace the injured Terem Moffi.

“It’s hard work and dedication but for me sometimes you work hard and don’t see the result but just keep on working, be patient and God will do the rest. I’m very happy to be part of the Super Eagles.

“For me, it’s every player’s dream. Every player will be happy to be part of the Super Eagles and in one of them.

“It’s a privilege and honour for me to be part of the team which I’m very happy about,” Awoniyi said on Brila FM.
