Akanni-Sunday Wasiu (born March 18, 1984 in Nigeria) is a Nigerian footballer who plays for Whitehawk. He has played for teams in Poland, Lithuania, England, Malta and China in his career.

Playing career[edit]

Sunday began his career in Poland with Szczakowianka Jaworzno, where he made 27 appearances, scoring 3 goals, before moving to Lithuania to play for FC Vilnius in 2006. During his time in Lithuania, he made 15 appearances, scoring 1 goal, before deciding to try his luck in England in 2007, signing for non-league St Albans City. He impressed at Clarence Park, bagging 3 goals in 12 appearances before pitching up on trial with Colchester United on trial during the summer of 2008, where he eventually earned himself a one-year deal.

A pacy and powerful striker, Akanni-Sunday Wasiu joined Luton Town on a month’s loan from Colchester United in mid-January 2009,[1] having been a long-term target for Hatters boss Mick Harford. He scored once in five games for Luton before his loan deal expired.

After the 2008-2009 season, Akanni-Sunday Wasiu was released by Paul Lambert and Colchester United after failing to make an impression on the first team.

Sunday joined Floriana on August 28, 2009 and his debut came the following day in a 0-6 loss against rivals Valletta. His second appearance for the club was a more pleasant experience, as he netted his first goal in the 1-1 draw against Tarxien. The powerful striker fast became a fan favourite at the club and was voted as the Man Of the Match on three occasions by the Maltese journalists. In 13 matches with the Greens' Wasiu netted no less than 7 goals.

From the 2010 season he switched to playing for Chinese football team (Changsha Ginde before moving to Shenyang Dongjin in 2011. In 2012 he returned to Floriana in Malta.

In September 2014 he returned to England to play for Whitehawk.[2]
