Taiwo Awoniyi to Replace Injured Lorient Forward Terem Moffi

Ahead of the double-header World Cup qualifiers against the Central African Republic, forward Taiwo Awoniyi had been called up to replace injured Lorient forward Terem Moffi.

Awoniyi who has been in fine form grabbed a brace over the weekend when his club Union Berlin beat Mainz 1-2 on the road. His call-up follows an injury sustained by Moffi in his side’s 1-1 draw with Clermont yesterday in the French Ligue 1.

Moffi was also supposed to serve as a replacement for Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi who failed his fitness test just before the week 7 round of Premier League matches.
