Birthday boy El Shaarawy sinks former club Genoa

AC Milan gained just their third Serie A victory of the campaign thanks to Stephan El Shaarawy, who celebrated his 20th birthday in style by scoring the only goal against Genoa CFC.

Stephan El Shaarawy marked his 20th birthday with the only goal of the game as AC Milan registered their third Serie A win of the season at the expense of Genoa CFC.

The Italy striker, who started his career with the Rossoblu, was the brightest spark in a first half devoid of meaningful chances. Ignazio Abate threatened after the break with a shot which Sébastien Frey saved with his legs, before Urby Emanuelson released the right-back, who crossed for El Shaarawy to tap in his sixth league goal of the campaign.

Milan climb seven places to eighth as a result, while Genoa, for whom this was their first game under new coach Luigi Del Neri, drop into the bottom half following their fifth match without a victory. Bottom-of-the-table AC Siena halted a run of three successive defeats by drawing 0-0 in the early game with fellow strugglers US Città di Palermo.
