Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo netted for the third consecutive game, grabbing a brace in Crotone’s 4-1 victory against Sassuolo.
For the fourth straight game, the 25-year old played from start to finish.
He scored in the 16th and 89th minute, to take his league goals tally to six.
The big striker rose to head in a brilliant cross. He failed, but somehow the ball came back off his chest before bouncing into the net. He added another one late on, getting the better of his marker before finding the bottom corner of the near post.
The victory moved Crotone four points clear of the drop zone.
Two weeks ago, the Nigerian grabbed the headlines in Italy when he scored a stunning bicycle-kick goal against leaders Juventus, that was followed by a close-range finish at Udinese.
