Copa Del Rey: Umar scores in Almeria’s away win
Nigeria international, Sadiq Umar, was on the score-sheet in Almeria’s away win from home against a Spanish lower division side Amorebieta in the Copa Del Rey on Thursday.
Umar who came on the heels of an impressive performance in Almeria’s home win against Real Zaragoza over the weekend in the league where he also scored rose once again to deliver Almeria’s opener in the first half.
The lanky striker flicked into the net a swift square play from Juanjo Nueto who had made a succinct run into the Amorebieta’s defensive line from the right flank.
The 24-year old Nigerian forward has now bagged nine goals in all competitions for the ‘Rojiblancos La’ this campaign.
The hosts would equalize in the fifty-sixth minute through Inigo Orozco whose power-less shot was bundled into the Almeria net by Georgi Makaridze.
Almeria however got the winning goal five minutes after Amorebieta’s equalizer. The 20-year old Appiah fired in a left footed shot into the far post.
Almeria have now progressed into the next round of the Spanish Cup and will next travel to Lugo in the Spanish Segunda Division on Monday.
