Omeruo fails to win promotion to LaLiga with Leganes


Kenneth Omeruo and his Spanish club Leganes, on Sunday failed to secure promotion to LaLiga, after they lost 2-1 at home to Rayo Vallecano.

Bebe scored twice in the second half, while Alvaro Garcia also got on the scoresheet, to ensure the Cucumber Growers lost 3-0 in the play-off’s first leg at the Estadio de Vallecas.

Heading into the second leg, they needed to overturn their three-goal deficit to stand a chance of returning to Spain’s elite division.

However, they ended up on the losing side despite taking an early lead against Andoni Iraola’s team.

Moroccan forward Yacine Qasmi was handed a starter’s role by the visitors, albeit, he was substituted in the 58th minute for Martin.

On the other hand, Nigeria international Omeruo was in action from start to finish for Asier Garitano’s side.
