Simeon Nwankwo has dedicated his goal in Crotone’s 1-1 draw against Salernitana to his ‘princess’.

The Super Eagles forward welcomed his first child to the world on October 19.

On Sunday, Nwankwo started from the bench and was introduced for Adrain Stoian in the 73rd minute for his ninth league appearance for the season.

The 26-year-old’s effort in the 85th minute earned the Pythagoreans a point at home. And the goal - his second in the 2018-19 season - has been reserved for baby Belmira.

"First goal for my princess. Thanks for bringing a new meaning and direction to our lives, we love you," Nwankwo posted on Instagram.
