Sadiq Umar is gradually adapting to the system of play of the Super Eagles. He justified his call-up to the Eagles team in the clash against Guinea Bissau.
At 56’ minutes of play when he was about to be substituted, he scored a beautiful goal and proved his doubters wrong. Sadiq might not be the technically inclined player or the dribbling type, but he is definitely doing what a striker is paid to and that is scoring goals. He proved that in his Almeria club side and he also did that in the match against Guinea Bissau.
Will he be giving more opportunities to show what he is made up of ? Fingers crossed.
