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, 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.
