Coppa Italia: Okereke Ensures Osimhen Crashes Out

It was a resilient display from Cremonese as the 20th team in the league defeated the league leaders Napoli by 5-4 on penalties after playing a 2-2 draw in over 120 minutes.

The two teams went into the match with a contrasting league result with Napoli defeating Juventus 5-1 while Cremonese lost to Monza 3-2.

Nigeria international, David Okereke was a turn in the flesh of Napoli in the early minute contribution played a part when Charles Pickel was ready to tap in at the back post.

Napoli in no time equalized through what looked like a controversial goal from Juan Jesus. And three minutes late Napoli took the lead Giovanni Simione.

Okereke was not never going to see team go down at least not without a fight, so he continued to imposes himself on the Napoli center-backs.

Just as it seemed as if Napoli were coasting towards the final whistle, Cremonese equalized through Felix Afena-Gyan who happened to be Okereke’s replacement.

Osimhen was later introduced in the extra time but the game still went into Penalties.

While every one scored for Cremonese, Osimhen and three others scored other shootout except Lobotka who missed his only for Napoli to crash out of the Italian Cup.
