Talented Nigerian striker scores 18th goal for Spanish club

Nigerian players; especially the strikers are enjoying a phenomenal season across Europe.

While the weekend was used in celebrating the heroics of Kelechi Iheanacho for Leicester City, Samuel Chukweze for Villarreal and even Paul Onuachu for Genk, another Nigerian striker has given extra reason for the celebrations to continue.

Nigerian striker, Sadiq Umar got the only goal that gave his side, Almeria a point in a crucial encounter against Espanyol on Monday night.

After a barren first Umar shot his team in front five minutes after the break.

The former AS Roma striker got the curtain raiser with a beautiful finish after taking on the defender of Espanyol, using his strength and precision to finish up to get the goal.

Almeria’s lead was however short-lived as Espanyol immediately responded by getting their equalising goal through barely ten minutes later.

Espanyol had the chance to take all three points from Monday’s tie but they blew away the penalty awarded to them.

Umar with his latest strike now has 18 goals to his name as far as the ongoing season is concerned: 16 goals in the league and 2 goals in the Cup game.
