The Super Eagles player made his Champions League debut for Real Sociedad on Wednesday, but it didn’t go as planned.

The Nigerian striker admitted his disappointment with Real Sociedad’s 1-1 draw against Inter Milan in their UEFA Champions League opening match and is determined to secure a victory next time.

Real Sociedad kicked off their UEFA Champions League campaign against Inter Milan in front of their home fans at the Anoeta Stadium.

Unfortunately for the Nigerian International, he had to kick of the game from the bench as Brais Mendez’s 4th-minute goal gave the La Liga side an early lead.

While Real Sociedad dominated most of the match, they couldn’t increase their goal tally. Umar was introduced into the game in the 72nd minute, but his presence didn’t change the outcome.

The Imanol Alguacil men failed to guide their lead jealously as Inter Milan scored just three minutes before the end of normal time.

After the game, Umar appeared dejected and expressed his disappointment with the result while talking to Oma Sports.

He said that they were winning 1-0 when he came in, but the last-minute goal that made it 1-1 left his heart in pains.

He admitted that everything depended on the result, but they simply have to look ahead to the next game now.

The forward also pointed out that they didnt completely lose out; they have earned one point, which was also good, but he felt bad because they could have gotten the three points.

Since returning from a lengthy injury layoff, Umar has struggled to find the back of the net and has mainly been a substitute for Real Sociedad.

The club faces Getafe on Sunday, and Umar hopes to regain his scoring touch and relieve the pressure on himself.
