Former Flying Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi has maintained his good form in front of goal, scoring for the second straight game as Union Berlin strengthened their bid for Champions League

Awoniyi, who’s on loan from Liverpool, struck the opener for the home side, in the 58th minute, slotting home off a Grischa Prömel knock-on from a corner kick.

It was his fourth goal in eleven Bundesliga appearances with all four strikes coming in the last six matches.

Teenage sensation Youssoufa Mukoko equalized for Dortmund on the hour-mark but Marvin Friedrich prodded home the winner in the 78th minute to give the home side all three points at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

The defeat leaves Dortmund in the fourth position on the league table, six points from leaders Bayer Leverkusen and five from second-placed Bayern Munich both of whom face themselves on Saturday.

Super Eagles gaffer, Gernot Rohr has of late shown interest in the Nigerian international as he intensifies efforts to sharpen his attack in readiness for the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers next year.
