On the day of his 24th birthday we look back at Umar Sadiq’s 27-minute hat-trick for UD Almeria.
The Nigeria international joined the Spanish LaLiga2 (Segunda División) club from Partizan Belgrade in October and has made a huge impact in Almeria’s push for promotion.
Sadiq has scored 11 goals in 20 league appearances for Almeria this season, including three in a 3-1 win over Ponferradina last month.
The 2016 Olympic bronze medal winner has scored eight goals in his last seven appearances to help Rojiblancos up to third, three points behind leaders Mallorca and level on 45 points with Espanyol.
