Want-away Cameroonian defender, Nicolas Nkoulou scored Torino’s lone goal in a frustrating 1-1 draw in Match-day 26 this Saturday, June 20, evening as Serie A return to action this weekend.

Nkoulou gave Torino a 15th minute lead against visiting Parma. The defender celebrated his goal with the symbolic #BlackLivesMattter celebration.

Slovakian midfielder Juraj Kucka benefited from an assist from Ivorian Yao Gervino to equalize for the visitors just after the half-hour mark.

But sides retired for the half time break with the score at one-all.

The second segment of the game was played at near walking pace with chances few and far between.

The game ended on a parity score with an outstanding display from Nicolas Nkoulou.

The former AS Monaco defender has accumulated 27 games in all competitions this season. He helped Torino stay just-above the relegation zone, midway through the current Italian Serie A campaign.

The goal is Nkoulou’s fourth in 104 appearances since he join the Club in 2017.

He has been heavily linked with a move away from Turin, but certainly his first target is to keep Torino afloat at the end of the 2019-2020 season.

With 12 Serie A games left, Torino is 15th on the log with 28 points from 26 games this season.

Torino host Udinese in match-day 27 of the championship this Tuesday.
