Nigerian Striker Simy Hits 7th Serie A Goal For Struggling Crotone

Nigerian Striker Simy Hits 7th Serie A Goal For Struggling Crotone

By Johnny Edward:                              Nigerian striker, Simeon Nwankwo, also known as Simy, scored his seventh league goal the season in the Italian Serie A for Crotone who were forced to a 2-2 draw at home to Lazio on Sunday.

 
Nwankwo restored parity for Crotone in the 29th minute after Senad Lulic had shot visitors Lazio into the lead in the third minute.
 
Federico Ceccherini gave Crotone the lead in the 61st minute but a late goal from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic four minutes from time salvaged a point for Lazio.
 
Crotone currently occupy the 18th position in the Serie A table with 35 points from 37 games with one game left to play.
 
Crotone must beat Napoli in their final league game next Sunday to avoid relegation. They will also hope SPAL 2013, in 17th position with a superior goal difference, fail to get a win at home to Sampdoria.

    This Simmy Nwankwo of a guy is definitely a threat to the strikers in the super eagles.

  • I don’t mind if he gets the Joker spot in the Russian bound squad.
    He might just be the revelation of 2018.
    Congrats bro.

    Serie A. I meant

    No Nigerian player has ever scored 7.

    Nsofor scored 6 during his peak at verona.

  • I think he is a better striker than Ighalo. He scores all kinds of goals and he is skillful as well. He can really play football. Good in air, tall, big and strong on the ball. Knows what he wants out of every duel with a defender.

    Simeon Nwankwo is a big deal. Thanks Couch Rohr for bringing this guy in the team at this particular time. Nigeria needs him in Russia.
