Awoniyi, who has been capped by Nigeria at U17, U20 and U23 levels, was a thorn in the flesh of the opposing defenders and he lasted for 89th minutes before he was replaced by Joel Gerezgiher.
He almost scored in the first minute, but missed by a whisker. The lanky striker was denied a goal in the 38th minute by the goalkeeper, who made a big save.
Two minutes later, he was denied again by the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation. Frankfurt are now 14th on the 18-team Bundesliga 2 league table with 26 points from 22 matches.
Before his debut,the 18-year-old striker has been an unused sub in six league matches for his club.
