Everyone seems to love Adebayo Akinfenwa, no matter what their allegiances are and the gesture 'The Beast' made during what could have potentially been his last match for AFC Wimbledon will make football fans love him even more.
AFC Wimbledon were drawing 0-0 with Newport County yesterday afternoon when they were awarded a late penalty. With it almost certainly being the last time Akinfenwa turned out for The Dons, him dispatching the penalty and winning the match seemed like the perfect way to mark the occasion. However, captain BeastMode had different ideas.
Instead of taking the spot kick himself, Akinfenwa handed penalty taking duties to 18-year-old debutant Toyosi Olusanya, who stepped up and buried his effort to win the game for The Wombles. Olusanya had been playing college football until last year before signing up to Wimbledon's academy.
The best feeling ever! Delighted to make my debut for @AFCWimbledon and get a goal. @daRealAkinfenwa you legend :thumbsup: pic.twitter.com/Srarr59MIn
