Awoniyi replaces injured Moffi in Eagles squad

Taiwo Awoniyi has been called up as a replacement for Lorient forward Terem Moffi for Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Central African Republic.

Moffi was named as replacement for Everton winger Alex Iwobi on Friday, but the impressive forward however sustained an injury in Lorient’s 1-1 draw against Clermont on Sunday and has now been ruled out of the double-header.

As a result, the Nigeria Football Federation announced on Sunday night that Union Berlin’s Awoniyi will take the place of the 21-year-old.

Awoniyi has scored five goals in seven league appearances for the Bundesliga outfit this season.

Gernot Rohr’s men will take on CAR at the Teslim Balogun Stadium Lagos on October 7 before facing same opponent three days later in Douala.
