Forgotten Super Eagles Striker fires Crotone To Second in Serie B


Nigerian International Simy Nwankwo’s first half brace ensured Crotone FC cruised to a 3-1 victory against Virtus Entella in weekend’s Serie B fixture.

Nwankwo opened the scoring in the 27th minute before adding the second in the 38th minute to give Crotone a 2-0 win at halftime.


Crotone FC midfielder, Giovanni Crociota added the third goal in the 63rd minute before Luca scored a consolation goal for the visitors in the 78th minute.


The win at the Stadio Ezio Scida on Saturday,their fourth for the season, putĀ  Giovanni Stroppa’s side second on the log.


The out-of-favor Super Eagles forward, who was not part of the recent list released by Coach Gernot Rohr for the October 13th friendly match against Brazil, has 4 Serie B goals this term and will hope to get a look-in in subsequent games.
