Awoniyi To Miss Super Eagles Friendlies Due to Groin Injury

Nottingham Forest’s Taiwo Awoniyi is out for a month due to a groin injury sustained during training.

The injury will see Awoniyi miss Nigeria’s upcoming friendlies against the Greens of Saudi Arabia and Mambas of Mozambique.

The 26-year-old missed Nottingham Forest’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The striker has evolved into a key figure since his £17million signing from Union Berlin in June 2022 and scored in all three of Forest’s opening Premier League matches this season.

Nigeria have a friendly lined up against Saudi Arabia and Mozambique on October 13 and October 16 respectively.
