Taiwo Awoniyi

Taiwo Awoniyi picked up a knock that kept him out of 12 games for Nottingham Forest, and Super Eagles AFCON 2023 campaign 

Super Eagles forward Taiwo Awoniyi showcased a unique goal celebration during Nottingham Forest’s victory against West Ham United, as reported by Soccernet.ng.

Awoniyi, known for his Christian faith, removed his shirt to reveal a Bible verse boldly written on it, further emphasizing his spiritual beliefs.

Following Nottingham Forest’s successful campaign to avoid relegation from the English Football League, Awoniyi was seen delivering a testimony at a church, expressing gratitude to God for his team’s achievement.

In a previous interview with Soccernet.ng, the Super Eagles attacker admitted his shyness but revealed that his wife encouraged him to share his testimony in front of the congregation as a way of thanking God for their success.

During the match against West Ham at the City Ground Stadium, Awoniyi scored in the closing minutes of the first half, capitalizing on a pass from Nicolas Dominguez to beat Alphonso Areola.

His jubilant celebration included removing his shirt to reveal a Bible verse from Ecclesiastes 12:13, encouraging believers not to doubt God.

It reads: “Kilen F’olorun pe. In all darkness time, you became the light, Yeshua is lifted high”
