Even if the opposing team erects the great wall of China on their goal post, it won’t deter Simy Nwankwo from scoring one or more goals and the interesting thing is, he does it with ease.
The likes of Lazio, Napoli, Cagliari in recent games can testify to how devastating the Nigerian striker is in front of goal.
The Nigerian striker continues to break and set his own Serie A goals record with goal he scores. The Nigerian registered his sixteenth goal of the season in a 3-2 loss at Spezia.

Simy Nwankwo put his side ahead in the 78th minute but they failed to hold on to their 2-1 lead as Spezia equalized and took maximum points late in the match.
Simy Nwankwo’s goal is his sixteenth – the most by any Nigerian in the Serie A at the moment.
The 6ft striker will look to add more goals to his tally with eight matches left before the end of the season.
He is now one goal away from matching Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s record of Most Goals scored by a Nigerian in Europe’s top five leagues.
Yakubu Aiyegbeni scored 17 goals for Blackburn Rovers in the 2012/2013 season
