Simy Nwankwo, after leading Crotone to Serie A as topscorer, now wants Super Eagles return
By Toju Sote
Crotone striker and Serie B topscorer Simy Nwankwo has set his target on returning to the Super Eagles after an excellent season in which he shot his team back to the Italian top-flight.
The 28-year old bagged 20 league goals in the campaign to emerge as the league’s top scorer and his 21 strikes and three assists across all competitions saw him become the club’s top performer for the season.
Nwankwo has five caps and one goal for the Super Eagles since he made his debut against Congo DRC in May 2018.
The forward was part of the Super Eagles team that was eliminated at the group stage of the World Cup in Russia, coming on as a substitute against Croatia and Argentina.
He has however not featured for the national team since he made a bench appearance against Seychelles in September 2018 in an AFCON qualification match.
