Girona forward Kayode Olanrewaju has rued his missed chance in Sunday’s 2-2 LaLiga draw against Atletico Madrid, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Olanrewaju was handed a cameo appearance on his debut for Girona and the former Austria Wein striker almost grabbed the winner, but his header was parried by Jan Oblak in the 93rd minute.
The Super Eagles striker told Completesportsnigeria.com: “I had a great debut but I was unlucky not to have scored.”
Kayode joined the newly promoted La Liga outfit on a season-long loan after signing a four-year deal with English Premier League club Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.
“I hope to settle down with my new team and have a good understanding with all the players in our team so we can both help the team achieve great things,” he added.
Kayode however hoped he would get the nod to lead in the line when Girona host Malaga in their next LaLiga game at the Montilivi Stadium at the weekend.
Kayode is expected to be included in Nigeria’s squad to face Cameroon in a 2018 World Cup qualifier next month.
