LOAN WATCH: Liverpool youngster Awoniyi scores in Mouscron debut

Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi scored on his debut in Royal Excel Mouscron's 2-0 win over Lokeren.

The Nigerian started for the Belgian club and it did not take long for him to have an impact on the game.

With 23 minutes on the clock, Awoniyi directed his precise header past Davino Verhulst in the Lokeren goal after connecting on Mergim Vojvoda's cross.

The win leaves Mouscron fifth on the Jupiler League table after three matches.

Awoniyi, who turned 20 on Saturday, spent last season on loan at Eredivisie club NEC.
