Providing an update on Awoniyi, Mainz disclosed that the 22-year-old would spend the night in the hospital as a precautionary measure.

“Our striker Taiwo Awoniyi suffered a concussion in his collision with Augsburg’s Felix Uduokhai and is spending the night in the hospital as a precautionary measure,” Mainz wrote on Twitter.

“Get well soon, Taiwo!”
