Serie A: Simy Sends Gernot Rohr Clear Message Ahead Afcon Qualifiers

The Italy-based striker has not seen his name pop up often in the recent discussion about the best Nigerian forwards in Europe, but he is giving his all to stay relevant in the national picture

Simeon Simy Nwankwo has smashed in a 27th-minute penalty to give Crotone a first-half lead at home to Torino in a Serie A clash on Sunday afternoon.

Torino’s Cristian Daniel Ansaldi handled a goal-bound Junior Messias header, prompting the referee to whistle for a spot-kick after VAR intervention.
Simy stepped up to blast past Salvatore Sirigu in the visitors’ goal.

It is the Super Eagles striker’s sixth goal of the league campaign, making him the highest scoring Nigerian in the Italian top-flight; better even than Napoli ace Victor Osimhen, who has managed just two goals since his summer switch from Ligue 1 to the Serie A.

Details shortly.
