No Show For Sadiq Umar, Nura Returns As Roma Pip Tottenham 3-2 In Pre Season Tie


English Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-3 to Italian Serie A side Roma in a pre season tour played at the Red Bull Arena in the United State of America.


Roma were two goals up until the 88th minutes when Spurs drew level, but just when it appears the game was going to end in a stalemate, Tumminello scored what ended as the winner one minute before full time.

The game had two Nigerian players on the bench for Roma with Sadiq Umar who has found the back of the net in the Italian Serie A side last two pre season games joined on the bench by his childhood friend and Nigerian teammate at Roma Nura Abdullahi.

It is the first time that 19 year old Nura has been listed in any of their pre season games this season, a sign of how well he has recovered from the injury setback that cost him game time with the first team last season.

Although the duo are heavily tipped with a loan move away from the team, Sadiq has had the most interested with Serie A side Crotone and Hellas Verona keen on the services of the forward who was top scorer for Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
