    I wonder why CSN is not giving a WRAP UP of the UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE yesterday tonight. We have some Nigerians that played and even impressed.

    SADIQ UMAR(Partizan Belgrade) scored 2 goals emulating his compatriot Dennis Bonaventure in scoring Double. In a Week, we now have 2 Nigerians that scored double both in the Champions League and Europa League. Our strikers are really impressing. Sadiq Umar seem to have found his form at Partizan and shouldn’t be neglected. He scored double again in the Serbian League during the weekend and he’s got another double in the Europa league. In all, SADIQ UMAR has now got 7 goals in 9 games for Partizan Belgrade this season. The towering striker can add a lot of spice to our attack. I personally prefer him to Onuachu sef. Over to Rohr and his scouts. Hope they don’t neglect him any longer
