Nigeria internationals, Awoniyi and Aina, were both on duty for Nottingham Forest on Sunday when they lost to West Ham with Awoniyi scoring Forest’s first goal and Aina providing assist for the other one.
West Ham had an early goal on their home soil in the first half through Lucas Paqueta’s driven finish.
The Brazil midfielder scored after just three minutes when Forest defender Nicolas Dominguez gave the ball away and it bounced perfectly for Paqueta to power into the bottom corner.
Taiwo Awoniyi equalised just before the break, following up from close range after Morgan Gibbs-White’s initial shot was parried into his path by goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.
Forest were in front for the first time in the contest when Ola Aina’s cutback into the box was pounced on by Anthony Elanga, who fired into the bottom corner, but Bowen equalised for the Hammers almost immediately before Soucek took the points in the 88th minute.
