Ghanaian youngster, Felix Afena-Gyan has made his debut for Serie A giants, AS Roma in the club’s 2-1 win over Cagliari.
The 18-year-old replaced Matias Vina in the 57th minute when Roma were trailing 1-0 after Leonardo Pavoletti scored for Cagliari and helped Jose Mourinho’s men to victory.
After a stellar start to the season where he has scored 6 goals in 5 games with the Giallorossi’s U-19 side, Afena-Gyan caught the attention of Jose Mourinho and was handed his first league game.
After making his debut, the Ghanaian youngster could not hide his joy, dedicating his first appearance to his fans and teammates and professing love to his mother in Ghana in an emotional interview.
“Mum, I love you.”
