Kasimpasa: Omeruo Excited to Score First Goal of Season in Istanbul Derby

Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo is full of excitement after scoring his first goal of the season for Turkish Super Lig club, Kasimpasa.

The centre-back was on target in Kasimpasa’s 2-1 defeat to Istanbul rivals, Galatasaray on Friday night.

Cote d’Ivoire forward, Wilfred Zaha gave Galatasaray a two-goal lead before Omeruo reduced the deficit in the 54th minute.

The 30-year-old rose high to power home a header from a corner kick.

The visitors were, however, unable to equalise despite putting up a good fight for the remainder of the game.

“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.. 💪🏾💪🏾,” Omeruo wrote on his Facebook page.

The defender rejoined Kasimpasa for a third spell this summer from Spanish Segunda División club CD Leganes.
