Super Eagles 2018 World Cup star Simeone Nwankwo continued his impressive scoring form after netting two goals in Crotone’s 5-1 away bashing of relegated Livorno, in Friday’s Serie B game, Completesports.com reports.

The win means Crotone will gain promotion to Serie A if third placed Spezia fail to beat Cremonese later on Friday.

Nwankwo, 28, scored Crotone’s third goal in the 35th minute and fifth goal in the 59th minute from the penalty spot.

Crotone’s other scorers were Niccolo Zanellato (31st minute) and Alberto Gerbo (40th minute).

Mattia Trovato had given Livorno the lead just 12 minutes into the game.

Nwankwo now tops the Serie B scorers chart on 20 goals and has scored seven goals in his last five games.

Crotone are second (one of two automatic promotion spots) on 65 points and are nine points ahead of Spezia with two games left to play.

Benevento, led by former Italy and AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi, have already secured promotion to Serie A.
