Nigerian striker Simeon Nwankwo scored a superb bicycle kick on Wednesday night, April 18, two weeks after Ronaldo netted in the same style.

Interestingly, Nwankwo also scored against Juventus in a tough Italian Serie A game which secured a vital point for his side Crotone.

Alex Sandro opened scoring for Juventus in the 16th minute, but the audacious equalizer from the Nigerian forward helped relegation-threatened Crotone to a 1-1 draw.

Nwankwo's goal against Juventus hurt their fortunes of winning the League as former Arsenal goalie Wojciech Szczesny who was in goal for Juve had no choice than to watch as the ball entered the net.
