Crotone of Italy striker, Simeon Tochukwu Nwanwko (Simy) and Stephen Eze of Lokomotiv Plovdiv of Bulgaria were both on song, while Moses Simon got an assist for FC Nantes of France, megasportsarena.com gathered.
In Italy, Simy opened his league account on a good note as he scored twice in quick succession to lift Crotone to a 2-1 win away at Spezia.
Having fired blanks in his opening league game at home to Cosenza, the 27-year-old led the line for the visitors as they went in search of their first win of the season.
After a cagey opening twenty minutes, the visitors went ahead on the 24th minute when the ever-present Simy scored from 12 yards to give Crotone a 1-0 lead.
Simy then doubled his side’s lead five minutes later as he finished off an assist from Junior Messias before the hosts pulled one back just before the half time whistle via the boots of Federico Ricci as Crotone went into the break 2-1 up.
In Bulgaria, Eze scored his first goal of the season to help Lokomotiv Plovdiv avoid defeat at home to city rivals Botev Plovdiv.
The former Kano Pillars defender started his eighth consecutive league game of the campaign as the hosts went in search of their fifth league win of the campaign.
Their hopes were however dashed inside the opening eight minutes when winger Lazer Marin finished off a perfect pass from Fernando Viana to put the visitors 1-0 up.
Eze was then booked halfway into the half as Botev went into the break with a 1-0 lead, but the 25-year-old restored parity for the hosts eight minutes after the break when he headed home a Parvizdzhon Umarbev cross.
Despite throwing everything but the kitchen sink at their guests, Lokomotiv failed to find the winner as both teams settled for a share of the points with the host moving up to 3rd on the log with 14 points.
In France, Simon continued his bright start to life in the French Ligue 1 as he helped FC Nantes claim their first home win of the season following their 1-0 win over Montpellier.
Having come off the bench to score on his debut for the club last weekend away at Amiens, the 24-year-old started his first game for the hosts as they went in search of their first home win of the campaign, but both teams however failed to produce any moment of spark in the first 45 minutes as they went into the break goalless.
Nantes, however, broke their visitors’ resistance six minutes from time when the ever-lively Simon wiggled his way down the flanks before setting up French midfielder Abdoulaye Toure who beat one marker before firing past the goalkeeper to seal all three points.
