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.
