EPL: Awoniyi On Target, Aina Bags Assist In West Ham, Nottingham Forest’s Five-Goal Thriller

Super Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi was at his best mettle as he netted a goal in Nottingham Forest’s 3-2 loss to West Ham in Sunday’s Premier League.

Awoniyi, who was making his 10th appearance, has scored four goals and bagged two assists in the ongoing League for Nottingham Forest.

His Nigerian compatriot, Ola Aina had a decent performance as he bagged an assist.

    Now that we are going to see awoniyi and aina, tella and boniface, in our nest game against Lesotho i hope their club familiarity combinations will transform to goals and assists, its going to be a good game to see, i predict 7 0, our strikers are on no stopping mode, they are really hot, goals are smelling everywhere even ebuehi,aina and saidu, are all contributing goals, moses simon and lookman, afcon gold is on the way, may God keep all of them from injuries.

      7-0 for where? Lmao!! Collins you too funny walahi. I hope we can be able to keep two clean sheets in this window with our goalkeepers. Maybe 3-1 or 4-2 against Lesotho. I can’t predict the away game vs Zimbabwe. I only hope we can get a win there because the game is in Rwanda. Having a lot of top strikers doesn’t always translate to goals in international football. If we can win both games by 1-0 what matters is the 6 points.
