Young Ghanaian striker Felix Afena-Gyan bagged his second consecutive brace for Roma to sink Pescara 0-3 on the road in matchday 5 in Italy's Primavera 1 division.

Gyan scored two goals in the 15th and 16th minutes of the game. His first goal was a combination of pace, trickery, intelligence and a killer instinct.

Felix had possession on the left flank, probed his marker, tricked and run past him to use three of his teammates in the box as a decoy to shoot the ball into the right bottom corner of the net.

The second goal was a result of a back pass confusion among the Pescara players who failed to beat the press of Roma, spearheaded by Felix Afena-Gyan. He managed to intercept a pass to a Pescara defender right at the edge of the 18-yard box and hit the ball into the top corner to double Roma's lead.

This comes on the back of his first brace against Hellas Verona before the international break. Gyan spent considerable time training with the senior side under the tutelage of Roma manager Jose Mourinho during the break.

The 18-year-old is currently the top scorer (6) in Italy's Primavera 1 U 19 youth division. He's scored in each of the last four games for the Giallorossi who are unbeaten with 13 points at the top of the table.

Felix Afena-Gyan played 76 minutes of action.
