Nigeria duo of Sadiq Umar and Nura Abdullahi suffered UEFA youth disappointment with the B team of AS Roma losing 3-1 to PSG to crash out in the quarter-finals.

Sadiq failed to add to his tally of 5 goals while Nura was part of a defence line that conceded three times as they both failed to inspire their side.

Both players will however take solace in the fact that there loan deal at the Serie A side will reportedly be turned into a permanent deal in the summer as Roma are ready to trigger their right of having the first option of buying the duo.

Nura heavily linked with a move to Barcelona is yet to make his first team debut but might get it as early as next week due to the injury to Antonio Rudiger while Sadiq has grown into a fan favourite.

The lanky forward called Jololo by friends and close associates has two goals from 7 first team appearances but has found games hard to come by since Rudi Garcia was replaced by Luciano Spalleti.
