Osimhen, Simeon Nwankwo On Target As Napoli Defeat Crotone by Officialhorlah(m): 8:24pm On Apr 03
The Nigeria stars found the back of the net in the fiercely contested match which saw the hosts come out victorious at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona
Simeon Nwankwo scored a brace in Saturday's Serie A match but it was not enough as Victor Osimhen's goal helped Napoli beat Crotone 4-3.

The defeat was Crotone's 22nd league defeat this season but Simy's contributions at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona took his tally to 15 goals after 29 league matches so far.
Osimhen, meanwhile, scored his fourth Serie A goal of the season by making it 2-0 for Gennaro Gattuso's side, three minutes after Lorenzo Insigne opened the scoring in the 19th minute.

Shortly after, Libya midfielder Ahmed Benali provided the assist for Simy to reduce the deficit for Crotone in the 25th minute but Dries Mertens restored Napoli's two-goal lead in the 34th minute.
Three minutes after the restart, Simy found the back of the net again and Junior Messias scored the equaliser for the visitors in the 59th minute.
With Crotone hoping to pick up their first point since their 4-2 win over Torino on March 7, Giovanni Di Lorenzo's 72nd-minute winner dealt a blow to them as Gattuso's men remain unbeaten in their last six matches.
Crotone are still rooted to the bottom of the Serie A table following the defeat with 15 points after 28 matches while Napoli are in fifth spot with 53 points from 27 outings.
Simy has scored eight goals in his last five matches for the Pythagoreans and he will be aiming to continue his rich vein of form when they travel to Spezia on April 10.
Osimhen, on the other hand, will hope to build on his second Serie A goal of the year when Napoli visit Juventus for a league match on Wednesday.
Osimhen recently returned from international duty with Nigeria where he scored a goal in the Super Eagles' 3-0 win over Lesotho in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Tuesday. Simy, however, was not included in Gernot Rohr's 24-man squad for the two games against Benin and the Crocodiles.

Simon nwankwo of crotone scored a brace making it 15 goals in seria and the highly rated oshimhen scored 1 goal to make it his 4th seria a goal this season....
crotone would get relegated bt i see simeon leaving crotone for a big move to another seria a or european club..
maybe Napoli got d wrong Nigerian but still think oshimhen needs anoda chance next season to prove doubters wrong..
the only positive vibe in seria a this season is dt inter have finally ran away with d league title breaking juve monopoly after how many years n i CNT wait to see how juve would react after this season..
maybe they would sack pirlo ir sell players bcoz losing the league is two steps backwards for them because juve have the highest paid player in the league in thier team...
I no call any name o....happy easter guys..

Osimhen will come good for Napoli, if you do Watch Napoli games you will realise he is actually what Napoli needs, Osimhen has always been a terrorist to defenders due to his strength, the only thing lacking is the goals and it will come sooner rather than later.

I hope so.
Having watched Napoli games previously, I was happy for him but at the same time sceptical about the move because their wingers (Mertens and one other guy) are their powerhouse not the No. 9

...

Yea was pretty dope seeing those two scoring in a match... Tho Simy's goal were much harder as all Victor had to do was to knock a cross from virtually only the goal net to beat.. Regardless both were outstanding..

Simy is currently, if not hotter than Iheanacho at the moment ...

He has 8 goals in his last 5 matches and is currently 5th on the Seria A scoring chart with 15 goals..

Couldn't really watch it 90 mins tho' cus a certain being with the XX chromosome wouldn't just let my head focus properly.. wink

I'm from the same town as this Simeon Nwankwo in Anambra state and actually played against him in a village Christmas tournament just a few years ago. Back then he was in Heartlands feeders team of Owerri and look at the young man today. I heard his family distributed his shirts and the town celebrated when it was confirmed that our town boy was going to the world cup.
No dream is unachievable. You just have to keep at it and with God nothing shall be impossible. Go Simy!

Simeon Nwankwo should be called up to the national team. Scoring 15 Seria-A goals is no small feat. He deserves to play for the super Eagles.

Crotone is an amateur team disguising as a professional outfit.

The only tested player in that team is Simy Nwankwo.

Take my word for it.

Osimhen isn't scoring a lot cos of one selfish Mexican guy called Lozano. That guy is too selfish, he doesn't make passes to Osimhen at all. Ever since Isigne and Mertens came back, Osimhen has been scoring decently....
There's a time Lozano was supposed to just make a simple pass to Osimhen, he just wasted the ball even the commentor was surprised.

Osimehen needs to stay in the box more often, that’s the only flaw in his game, he should stop late diagonal balls all in a bid to make space for Politano and Insigne
Stay in between the two center halves, make your self a nuisance and force the two wide men to look for your run, not you creating space for them to shoot

Osimhen is finding it a bit difficult because the other forwards in Napoli prefers to shoot and score themself. Insigne and Mertens are quite accomplished shooters so they prefer to shoot than lay a pay for osimhen.If you look at Osimhen's goal so far it's either from a counter attack or a lucky tap in in the box not from a structured team move because the team moves ends up with Insigne or Mertens shooting.Insigne is currently one of the top scorers in serie A
