Hope he gets invited for the next friendly. He's been scoring too consistently to be ignored.

Didn't rate to him too highly but i have to agree - 11 games , 5 goals or a goal every 123 minutes...perhaps he needs a look in. One thing he did not score at all in the Seria A before he moved to Holland in Jan. He played fewer games in Italy but even considering his goals per minute, one may have expected at least a goal. The Dutch league seems to suit him and he has done enough to be called up

Damunk

I believe he was named Jololo while playing in the academy in Nigeria. It was in reference to his height and movement.

He scores but his team keeps on losing! I don’t know what to make of the Dutch league. should Umar be scoring more than one goal per game ? I ask because the standard seems to be quite low

He is very inconsistent... moreso against tougher opposition. During the Olympics you saw the way he looked like a giant amongst kids vs Japan then went silent at other times. At the very least a player should be consistent enough in the Dutch league to deserve an invitation to the super eagles.

I think he scored 4 goals in 6 games at the olympics
Also I think those “kids” were his age mates
Finally I don’t think any one other than Luis Suarez in 2010 has scored more than one goal per game in the Dutch league for the last 10 years
Suárez was playing for the best team in the league back then
Sadiq plays for nac Breda

He seemed consistent to me during the Olympics. The only game in which he didn't play well was against Germany, and most of the team was poor in that game. I'm surprised he got so little playing time while he was on loan at Bologna and Torino. Happy he's scoring in Holland though. Not sure his good form is due to his talent or a reflection of how weak the Dutch league is. Probably a combination of both.

Ajax were Europa league finalists last year
which is more than can be said for teams from the Turkish, Belgian or Polish leagues

How strong/weak is the Chinese league compared to the dutch league
How many goals per game does Ighalo score there?
the Double standard on show here is crazy

He deserves a chance to fight for a spot, we just don’t have another striker with his build, height, and ability.

I'm loving Sadiq's aggression. :clap:
In fact, this goal reminds me of Rashidi Yekini vs Maldini in 94 when the Italian had to pull Yekini to the ground. I'm not sure he even got a yellow card for that but had he not done so, Yekini would have wired the net just like Sadiq did here.
I pray Sadiq continues his development even if the WC comes a little early for him to fully shine.

I am a little surprised that Gernot Rohr has not considered Sadiq Umar. Umar was raw during the Olympics but bagged some goals and terrorised defenders although yes his languid unbalanced running style may not suit many. But now that he is filling out into his body, he will be a serious threat. If Umar was at a good club, their first focus will be to work on his balance and improve on his efficiency. Rohr is very good at doing his research and I will not be surprised if Umar is called to camp for assessment. We need players with Umar's physicality.

We absolutely need someone to compete directly with Ighalo and I'm now convinced Sadiq is it.'

Umar is a really awkward striker for defenders. Which is a good thing.

Him, Dessers and Awoniyi are the only strikers in Europe that have been performing and for that alone deserve a look into, because the bench in this position is short.

Great goal and another defeat to his team thankfully he is only on loan. The goal is similar to the type Rashidi used to score.

With the unveiling events surrounding his form Rohr has to take a look at him now. We are pretty light striker wise as we only have one striker that scores goals (Nacho) while the other one only holds the ball up (he is very good at it).

Umar has always delivered the goods when given the chance. In his first season at Roma, he started ahead of Dzeko and scored 2 goals in 3 matches before the coach, Rudi Garcia, was sacked and he did not get a look-in under the new coach. He then played at the Olympics and scored 4 goals in 6 games. The next season, he was loaned to Bologna and he had an injury ravaged season which included having surgery and that limited his appearances.
He returned to Roma at the beginning of the current season and scored 2 goals in 2 matches, including a very good goal against PSG and again did not play another match in pre season until he joined Torino at the start of the season and was up against it from the beginning as he had no pre season with the team and was also competing for a spot with Italy's Belotti, who was the leading scorer for Torino.
He demanded to leave Torino to get playing time and the move seems to have paid off. I don't know about the WC, but he is definitely one for the future. His next move will be crucial to his development and I hope he joins Rudi Garcia at Marseille.

I remember Rohr saying he was interested in certain boys from the Olympics team and he said the striker (Umar) and the boy that scored 4 goals (Etebo). But seems his injury problems at Bologna didn't allow him to get a chance. I hope he eventually does.
