On Saturday evening, Taiwo Awoniyi scored the goal that handed Nottingham Forest their Premier League safety against title chasers Arsenal. It ended the Gunners’ title run and handed the trophy to Manchester City, the Citizens’ third straight triumph.
Hundreds of thousands rejoiced across the River Trent as the Nigerian secured safety for the team in their first season back to the Premier League since 1999. Awoniyi’s 19th-minute goal put history in favour of the Tricky Trees. It made him a hero again, just like he was at Union Berlin, where he made the fans dream.
