Nigeria international Taiwo Awoniyi sent a message to Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr with goal as his club Union Berlin were to held a 1-1 draw by Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga on Saturday.
The striker was signed permanently from Liverpool by the German capital club at the summer transfer.
And the Nigerian netted the curtain raiser in the seventh minute at Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
Moussa Diaby levelled up matters five minutes later.
Bayer pressed in their search for a winner in the second half, with Union Berlin holding on to ensure a stalemate.
