Mainz posted on Instagram with the accompanying picture, " This win is for Taiwoย  ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜".

The former Nigeria U23 international started the previous four matches contested by Mainz prior to the trip to Dortmund.

Liverpool, Awoniyi's parent club, have officially informed that their medical team is in contact with Mainz regarding the striker's injury and will continue to assess him before he is cleared to return to action.
