According to NGNewsHub.com, Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo assisted on Salernitana’s late goal in their 2-1 win over Venezia on Tuesday.
Simy’s second assist came in his 10th league outing, after Nigerian teammate Joel Obi was removed after 76 minutes.
Tyronne Ebuehi, a Super Eagles defender, was an unused replacement for Venezia, however David Okereke played and was taken off in the 74th minute.
Simy set up Andrea Schiavone to score the game-winning goal as the game was heading for a 1-1 draw.
Simy nodded down at the back post after former Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero fumbled a right-wing cross, allowing Schiavone to react quickly and drill in his first ever Serie A goal.
On 67 minutes, Venezia were reduced to ten men after Chelsea on loan midfielder Ethan Ampadu received a straight red card.
Prior to Tuesday’s game, Salernitana had lost their previous two league games, while Venezia had lost their previous two league games.
Despite the win, Salernitana is still in relegation trouble in 19th place with seven points, while Venezia is in 16th place with eight points.
