Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo has set his sights on making a comeback to the Super Eagles of Nigeria under the tutelage of Gernot Rohr following his wonderful goal-scoring form this season.

Nwankwo emerged top-scorer in the Italian Serie B for the 2019/20 season with 20 goals, one ahead of Penugia’s Pietro Lemmello who netted 19 times during the just concuded campaign.

This is also his most prolific season ever, netting 21 times in 38 games in all competitions for Crotone and logging a total of 3,115 minutes with a goal involvement of every 148
minutes.

The 28-year-old was last invited for national team assignment by chief coach, Rohr in September of the year 2018 and hopes his form could earn him a recall in the nearest future.

“When I went down, I knew the risks of losing that spot that I worked so hard to get to although I didn’t play more, which is perfectly understandable,” Nwankwo told ESPN.

“I met a team that was already structured with one of the best African strikers at the moment – Odion Ighalo. And it was normal, it was perfect for me to stay calm and learn and then watch how things are done. And then all of a sudden, I found myself out again, which is understandable.”
