Young striker Taiwo Awoniyi scored a hat-trick and supplied two assists on his debut as Nijmegen beat FC Kleve 5-0 in a friendly on Thursday.

He only officially joined the club last weekend on a season-long loan deal.

According to Nijmegen’s official site, he scored twice in the first half and added a further goal after the break.

It must be noted that FC Kleve play in the sixth tier of the German pyramid, so they aren’t exactly quality opposition – but nonetheless the 19-year-old Nigerian will be more than happy with how he equipped himself on his first showing in front of a new set of fans.
