Simy scores and assists, leads Crotone past Perugia 2-0


Super Eagles forward Simeon “Simy” Tochukwu Nwankwo scored one first-half goal and added a second-half assist to help Crotone humble Perugia 2-0 in the Italian Serie B on Tuesday night.


Simy opened the scoring in the 35th minute for his 12th league goal of the 2018/19 campaign.

He assisted as Andrea Barberis put the game beyond the visiting team in the 82nd minute.

The duo of Sadiq Umar and Kingsley Michael lasted the full match duration for Perugia at the Stadio Ezio Scida (Crotone).

According to a publication, Lazio wants to add the Simy to their attack and are prepared to offer him a three-year contract in the summer.

The 26-year-old stands to earn at least 3 million euros (N1.2 billion) in wages over the duration of the contract if the deal goes through.

Simy has scored 12 goals (4 assists) in 27 matches in the Italian Serie B while his total goals since his arrival in Italy three years ago is 23 in 76 appearances.
