Union Berlin’s Taiwo Awoniyi has been called up as a replacement for Lorient forward Terem Moffi for Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against the Central African Republic.
Moffi was named as a replacement for Everton winger Alex Iwobi on Friday.
The forward however sustained an injury in Lorient’s 1-1 draw against Clermont on Sunday and has now been ruled out of the double-header.
The Nigeria Football Federation announced on Sunday night that Awoniyi will take the place of the 21-year-old.
Awoniyi has scored five goals in seven league appearances for Union Berlin this season.
The Super Eagles will take on CAR at the Teslim Balogun Stadium Lagos on October 7 before facing the same opponent three days later in Douala.
