Lazio 3 Crotone 2: Simy hits brace to take tally to 5 in 3 Serie A games

Simy Nwankwo scored all the goals as Crotone suffered a 3-2 loss to Lazio in a Serie A game on Friday.

The home team took the lead through top Premier League clubs long term target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

But Simy equalised for his side in the 29th minutes of the game 15 minutes after Lazio took the lead.

Luis Alberto assisted by his captain Ciro Immobile gave Lazio the lead again in the 39th minute.

But Simy restored parity for Crotone from the spot kick in the 50th minute of the game.

Six minutes to the end of the game, former Manchester City striker Felipe Caicedo scored the winner for Lazio.

Simy Nwankwo who scored his 5th goal in his last three Serie A games was on the pitch for the entire duration of the game.

He has now scored a total of 12 goals in 27 Serie A games – no Nigerian player has ever reached that goal tally in Italian top flight league.
