Kingsley Michael Shines As Forgotten Super Eagles Forward Simy Nets At Both Ends In Crotone’s Loss To Perugia


19 year old former Nigeria youth international Kingsley Michael posted a five star performance for Serie B side Perugia in their 2-1 win over Crotone with Super Eagles World Cup 2018 forward Simy Nwankwo heavily involved.


Simy scored the leveller for Crotone after Perugia took the lead in the 23rd minute thanks to a through pass from Kingsley Michael who was on from start to finish.

Michael had the last laugh in the game as Simy scored an unfortunate own goal which handed Perugia all three points at the Stadio Renato Curi, the home ground of Perugia.

The game was the 9th game Michael who is on loan from Bologna is playing with a goal to his name so far while Simy has found the back of the net three times in 12 games for Crotone this season.

A late run of goals towards the end of last season helped Simy to force his way into the squad of Nigeria for the World Cup, a form he is yet to hit this season in the Serie B following Crotone’s relegation to the second division.

So far he has been in and out of the starting line up and it has also cost him his spot in the Nigerian team as back up to first choice striker Odion Ighalo with Watford Isaac Success taking his spot ‎in the Nigerian team.
