The former Golden Eaglets star did not score last weekend, but he is having an impressive season in the German top-flight.
Taiwo Awoniyi has not had it easy since he broke out at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup. The 22-year-old joined Liverpool in 2015 but has spent all of his time on loan at different clubs.
He struggled at these clubs before he finally found his feet with Union Berlin last season. After spending last season at Mainz, Awoniyi returned to Liverpool, who then loaned him back to Germany.
The Nigerian has found success with the capital side, who are also punching above their weights in the Bundesliga this season. Awoniyi has scored five times and provided two assists in the ten 13 Bundesliga appearances for the Iron Ones.
