The 22-year-old Nigerian bagged to made it 2-1, before his side eventually found a late equaliser against FC Koln.
Awoniyi has barely played for Mainz and many Reds on Twitter were not sure if we still owned him, but we do!
He’s actually been on our books since 2015 and is currently on his sixth loan away from Anfield.
We see it as very unlikely that he’ll made the grade for us, but we’re glad he’s scored and are hopeful he can stay in the team and knock in a few more before the Bundesliga season ends.

Just saw Taiwo Awoniyi score for Mainz on loan from Liverpool. I thought he was a myth.

Awoniyi has look really good since coming on for Mainz.
Goal aside, the Liverpool man has used his physicality to get close to his opponents while he has looked to create for his teammates too. pic.twitter.com/PEqECE3TqK
