Parma 0-1 Benevento: Cannavaro leaves Simy on the bench again


Simy Nwankwo was an unused substitute when Benevento traveled away to Parma in the Serie B on Thursday.

The 30 year-old Forward has made only 7 appearances this season, warmed the bench twice without getting minutes and has also made only two starts this whole season.


Although Simy featured in the previous game against Palermo, where he came off the bench for the final 30 minutes, he couldn’t help his side avoid defeat.


However, on Thursday, it turned out Coach Fabio Cannavaro didn’t need to call the Nigerian off the bench against his former side, as the visitors saw out a 1-0 victory even with 10 men.

Benevento played the final 10 minutes with a man less after first half substitute, Hamza El Kaouakibi was shown a straight red card.

Francesco Forte’s 20th minute goal decided the game and the points moved them out of the relegation zone, a point ahead of 16th placed Cosenza.

Under new Boss Cannavaro, Gli Stregoni have won just two matches, drawn five and lost three.
