MILAN (AP) -- AC Milan midfielder Antonio Nocerino has dedicated his goal 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 Italian 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."
