Reflections from a Sunderland star on a challenging overseas experience

Right-back for Sunderland With Northern Ireland on international duty, Trai Hume claims that losing has been “tough to take.”

On Sunday in Kazakhstan, the former Linfield player made his sixth appearance for his country, playing well as Northern Ireland fell by a solitary goal.

Hume stated, “I felt we had a lot of the ball, especially in the first half.” “During the game, I thought we were in control of the tempo, but we just keep losing in the crucial moments, and we can’t seem to get even. It’s quite depressing.

“They only had one or two shots throughout the game, according to my estimation, and they managed to score from one of them.

“Their young player made a good strike, but perhaps we can improve on it. Then, when we have chances, we just can’t seem to take them at crucial times.

Hume, 21, signed a contract extension with Sunderland earlier this summer, extending his deal until 2027 after a breakthrough 2022–2023 season.

Hume continues to get used to playing for Sunderland in the Championship and was awarded the Northern Ireland supporters’ player of the game in Kazakhstan.

“Undoubtedly, having the experience is beneficial. I don’t enjoy losing, so even the defeats will be beneficial moving forward,” he continued.

It’s difficult to handle, especially in close games, so maybe we can keep getting better. I thought my own performance was adequate, but it’s clear that we need to get better because we lost the game.
