Crotone striker Simeon Nwankwo is fast closing in on Yakubu Ayegbeni’s European league mark with his recent effort against Spezia. The towering striker was on target on Saturday, albeit, the Pythagoreans were subdued 3-2 by the Little Eagle in an Italian elite division outing. With the scores tied at 1-1 at the Stadio Alberto Picco, Nwankwo put his team ahead with a 78th-minute strike thanks to Niccolo Zanellato’s assist.
Simy Nwankwo and Koffi Djidji were on the scoresheet in Crotone’s 3-2 defeat to Spezia in Saturday’s Serie A game. The Nigeria and the Ivory Coast internationals made their contributions but these were not enough to save the Pythagoreans from their fourth consecutive loss. Simy has been one of the stand-out performers for Serse Cosmi’s men in the current campaign and continued his impressive goalscoring form at Stadio Alberto Picco.
