Ghana's No. 1

Ghanaian teen Felix Afena-Gyan dedicates brace against Genoa to mother

Published on: 22 November 2021

Ghanaian forward, Felix Afena-Gyan has dedicated his brace for AS Roma against Genoa to his mother in Ghana. 

The 18-year-old was the hero on Sunday night after climbing off the bench to net two late goals and hand Jose Mourinho in first win in three games.

Afena-Gyan replaced Eldor Shomurodov in the 75th and took only seven minutes to announce his arrival as he smashed home the opener from a Henrik Mikhytaryan assist.

And deep into injury time, he scored what could end up being a goal of the season contender.

"I dedicate these goals to my teammates, but above all to my mother who's still in Ghana, to whom I say I love you. Mourinho is a great coach, he helps me improve every day and I thank him. I scored these 2 goals, I just want to think about improving day by day," said the teenager to DAZN after the game. 

The double is his first and second in three serie A games this season. He also became the first player born in 2003 to score in the Italian serie A.
