    Simy’s last minute equalizer sends Inzaghi and Benevento down to Serie B. My condolences to Benevento fans.
    20 goals in Serie A! Incredible feat indeed. Let’s hope he can keep banging in the goals in the SE jersey. Like Onuachu, Simy also thrives on quality service. Leaving him on his own upfront won’t work. But supply him with crosses and thru passes, and Simy will get you goals.

    Watch the highlights of this game and see his intelligence and awareness in the box… Once again poacher instincts. Some call his goals Tap-in, some say its penalties… but you cannot take it away from Simy that he is a cat with nine lives… Playing against the best defenders in the trade and letting his hard work do his talking again… back-back 20goals haul for two consecutive seasons in Italy is no mean feat. It’s certain a decent club, most likely Sampdoria has lined a contract for him to append… Claudio Ranieri, the old sage of a coach will teach him more tricks to the trade most likely next season… We will be watching out. These guys have been great ambassadors of Nigeria football… the world is taking note and I bet you, I see European clubs
    going into more collaboration with lots of football academies in Nigeria in the next five years for what Osimhen, Onuachu, Simy, Moffi and Sadiq have all done… I congratulate them all for contributing to a fine season for Nigerian footballing talents… We just need to most importantly get grassroots coaches like Manu Garba, Nduka Ugbade and Finidi George back to the U-17/U-21 department of the national team, give them freehand while monitoring them closely and let them put back a solid and functioning cadet assembly line for Nigeria again. I also pray for peace in Nigeria and true leaders to bring everyone together for healing for the sake of humanity and our football. One love…

    Congrats to Simy. What a RUSH. 20 goals back to back in Italian 2nd and top divisions. Its so regrettable (ironically so) that this is happening when we also have equally prolific goal bangers all over the place. a 20 goal Seria A striker on a good day will be the undoubted no 1 CF for any African national team, but even Rohr’s biggest hater wouldnt justify a free pass to the no 1 CF role for Simy. But this June camp offers everyone a chance to fight for their SE destinies. All the goal bangers are there…..Osi dey dia, kele dey, Paul dey, Sadiq (jololo) no miss, Terem (Terrific) present, Simy dey, Olayinka folo come. But quite unfortunately…..only 4 will be left standing in the long run. It promises to be a battle of Magangira in that camp. Na dia we go know who go be 1st choice and 2nd choice Gks too btw Maduka and Odinaka. Because all these firehead strikers go faya them like no man’s business. Strikers fighting for their lives, goalkeepers fighting for theirs. Let the rumble begin.

    @Simmy, biko take Rohr’s Advise and leave Crotone as fast as your legs can carry you o. No mind all those sycophants whey dey insult rohr for giving candid advise o. Hpe say you don see the list of people wey you dey come meet for camp.

    @Jimmy I 100% agree with your thoughts above. It makes a lot of sense to me even if it doesnt make any to that fellow. Calm down ehn..LMAO. Sheath your sword…..at least take consolation say Dr.Drey dey ya back for this one….LMAO.

    This is absolutely a very good year for Nigerian strikers in Europe.Goals Goals Goals.An Amazing feeling.I am very uncomfortable with this Napoli team.Very selfish players playing around Victor Osihmen.They never pass to him when they should and yet he keeps delivering killer passes to them to score.
