Super Eagles forward, Simy Nwankwo’s impact in the Italian Serie B especially in the month of October was on Tuesday acknowledged as he was awarded the Player of the Month.
Nwankwo, who scored four goals in five league outings for Crotone in the month in review, is picking the award for the second time, having also picked it up in March.
The 27-year-old has scored seven goals in 11 Serie B appearances for Crotone this season, helping his side to stand third on the table.
Nwankwo has featured for Nigeria five times, and will be looking to maintain his form when Crotone host Ascoli at the Stadio Ezio Scida in Friday’s league fixture.
