Nocerino pays tribute to school shooting victims

AC Milan midfielder Antonio Nocerino has dedicated his goal on

Sunday to the victims of the school shooting in Connecticut.

After the game, an emotional Nocerino said he wanted to ”take

the chance to dedicate my goal to the American families of the

children killed in the school, my thoughts are only with

them.”

The Italy international scored after just 35 seconds of Milan’s

4-1 win over Pescara.

Nocerino, who has two young children, says he doesn’t ”know how

much the dedication will help the dead American children, but

everything I did today was only for them.”

On Friday, Adam Lanza used a high-power rifle to kill 20

children and six adults, including the head teacher who died trying

to stop him.
