LOAN WATCH: Liverpool attacker Awoniyi back on the scoresheet for Mouscron

Twenty-year-old Taiwo Awoniyi, who is on loan this season from Liverpool, hit a brace this weekend for Royal Excel Mouscron in their 4-3 loss to Standard Leige.

The goals, scored in the 19th and 76th minute, were his first goals of 2018.

For his first goal, the striker fought past two defenders before beating the keeper at his inside post.

Awoniyi then bagged his second goal with a left-footed shoot past three defenders and the keeper into the left-hand side of the net.

The Nigerian also got himself an assist in the enthralling encounter.
