Abuja - Flying Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi has been voted the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the pre-season invitational tournament Super 4.

The award carries a prize money of 200,000 Naira.

Awoniyi, who has a pre-contract with Swedish club Kalmar, scored two goals for the Flying Eagles and his all-round play was exceptional.

He is expected to sign a professional contract with the Swedish club in August, when he turns 18.

He featured at the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup, which Nigeria won in style.

The Nigeria U20s, who are preparing for the 2015 African Youth Championship in Senegal in March, won the six-team tournament in style with 13 points from five matches.
