Former Nigeria coach Samson Siasia has backed Almeria striker, Umar Sadiq for his maiden invitation to the super eagles after his fine performances in the Spanish second division this season.
The Nigeria Under 23 star is enjoying a goal scoring form in Spain since he joined Rojiblancos on a five-year deal from Serbian club Partizan Belgrade in October
He has scored nine goals in 18 appearances in the Segunda division, which include a hat-trick against Ponferradina last Sunday.
Sadiq was part of the dream team that won bronze at the 2016 Olympic Games where he contributed four goals in six appearances, and he is yet to be considered for an international assignment in over four years.
Sadiq, meanwhile, is ready to wait for his opportunity with the super eagles as he acknowledges the abundance of Nigeria-eligible talents across the world.
