Nigeria U23 forward, Taiwo Awoniyi, 22, on loan at Bundesliga club FSV Mainz from Liverpool was immediately rushed to the hospital today following a possible concussion he suffered in the 15th minute of their [0-1] league defeat against FC Augsburg on Sunday.
The 22-year old forward landed awkwardly after a clash of heads with Nigeria-eligible defender, Felix Udokhai in the first-half.
Awoniyi was stretchered off wearing a neck brace, but was reportedly responsive and speaking to medical staff on the way to the hospital.
We wish him speedy recovery.
Taiwo Awoniyi has been a Liverpool player since 2015, but is yet to make an appearance for the Reds due to work-permit ineligibility.
