Despite his remarkable performance, Kasimpasa suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Istanbul rivals, Galatasaray, on Friday night.

Cote d’Ivoire forward, Wilfred Zaha secured a brace during the encounter, providing Galatasaray with a two-goal advantage in first and second period of the game.

However, Omeruo managed to pull one goal back for Kasimpasa in the 54th minute.

Omeruo’s goal was a powerful header from a corner kick, but it wasn’t sufficient to secure a point for his team.

Despite putting up a strong fight for the remainder of the game, the visitors couldn’t equalize, and Galatasaray held on to claim a narrow victory.

After the match, the Nigerian defender expressed his belief that his team deserved better than the narrow setback.

Kenneth Omeruo also voiced his pride in his team’s performance and their determination to achieve more success.

He shared his sentiments on his Facebook page, stating,

What a game tonight.. we deserved more.. so happy with my first goal of the season, and also proud of this team, @kasimpasask, we keep going.”

Having rejoined Kasimpasa for a third stint this summer from the Spanish Segunda Divisi√≥n club CD Leganes, Omeruo will now focus on his team’s upcoming fixture against Kayserispor next week Saturday.

Despite the loss, Kasimpasa currently sits in the fifth position on the league table with 18 points, 13 points behind the league leaders, Galatasaray.
