On Saturday, Sierra Leone’s Augustus Kargbo and his Italian side will take on Calcio Foggia 1920 in the first leg of their second round of the Serie C playoff.
The two-legged matches of the 2nd round will be played on 27 and 31 May as Kargbo’s Crotone aims to secure a Serie B return.
The pairings were conducted at the Lega Pro headquarters on Tuesday as Zeman’s Pescara locked horns with Entella and Delio Rossi’s Foggia finds Crotone – Pordenone battles Lecco, Vicenza against Cesena.
The president of Lega Pro, Matteo Marani, the coach of Sassuolo Alessio, and Dionisi were all present for the draw.
Kargbo, who made his Serie A debut for Crotone on 20 September 2020 in a 1–4 away defeat to Genoa, will be hoping he can make a difference for his side in the next coming days.
The Sierra Leone International started his professional career in the Italian fourth-tier Serie D club Campobasso in 2017 before he moved to the summer of 2018 to join Serie B club Crotone.
