Sadiq Umar is mobbed by other Roma players after his winner

Nigeria Olympic international Umar Sadiq has finally got his shooting boots on after he fired the match winner for his Italian Serie A side Roma in a 1-0 win over Slovacko in a pre-season friendly.

The lanky forward, who was a 46th minute substitute for Diego Perotti, scored in the 77th minute.

On Tuesday, he failed to score as AS Roma dismantled Pinzolo 8-0 in another friendly.

Umar, who replaced Cappa at the beginning of the second half, fired blanks for Roma.

The 20-year-old striker spent the 2016/17 season out on loan at Serie A club Bologna.

During his spell at Bologna, he made only seven league appearances without netting a single goal.

Roma reportedly paid 1.5 million Euros when they signed Umar from Italian Serie B side Spezia at the end of the 2015/16 season.
