Super Eagles and Real Sociedad forward Umar Sadiq has been nominated for Spanish La Liga goal of the month award for December after posting an impressive run in the league.

 

Umar Sadiq goal against Osasuna on December 2, 2023 was the goal of the moment despite the game ending in a 1-1 draw.

 

Recall that Sadiq missed a large portion of the previous season due to injury, but he is now back to playing frequently.

 

The 26-year-old Nigerian striker made his Real Sociedad comeback with a fantastic strike from 25 yards out, helping the team overcome Sevilla 2-1 on November 25. The goal was his first for Real Sociedad since September 3, 2022.

 

 

Both Aitor Ruibal’s goal against Real Madrid and Sadiq’s goal against Villarreal have been nominated for the goal of the month for December; winning the award will be a great way for the Nigeria international to end the year.

 

Umar Sadiq is part of Jose Peseiro’s preliminary 41-man lineup for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations which will commence in Ivory Coast on January 11

 

With Peseiro expected to cut down the list to 27 before the kickoff of the continental fiesta, Umar will have to slug it out with legion of strikers viz Paul Onuachu, Terem Moffi, Emmanuel Dennis, Victor Osimhen, and Victor Boniface all at the disposal of the Portuguese coach for a slot in the team’s starting eleven.

The Eagles will begin their campaign in Cote d Ivoire against Equatorial Guinea on January 14
