Simy Nwankwo strikes twice to keep Crotone in Serie A
Simy Nwankwo scored twice on Saturday to power Crotone to a thrilling 4-3 win at Parma, securing the visitors’ Serie A status momentarily.
Crotone knew a loss at the Stadio Ennio Tardini against fellow relegation strugglers Parma would have sealed their Serie B fate.
And Serse Cosmi’s side, many thanks to the in-form Simy, put up a fantastic attacking display – and another shocking defensive showing – to keep up their slim fighting chance at survival.
Victory in each of their last five league matches may still not be enough to keep Crotone in Serie A, but Simy struck twice – once in each half – to give his teammates something to cheer during what has been a truly horrible campaign. Nwankwo struck his first shortly before the halftime break to restore his side’s lead after Hernani had cancelled Magallan’s 14th-minute opener and it was his 18th league goal of a brilliant individual season.
