Felix Afena-Gyan steals show with his first two goals in Roma win over Genoa

Felix Afena-Gyan was the surprise hero for Roma as they returned to winning ways against Genoa.

After some tough form before the international break, it seemed things weren’t going to change in the first game after the return. Roma were struggling to get past Genoa, other than a disallowed Henrikh Mkhitaryan strike in the first half.

But Afena-Gyan came to the rescue after being sent on as a substitute by Jose Mourinho. The teenager broke the deadlock with a well-placed first-time finish after Mkhitaryan’s assist in the 82nd minute.

Then to remove any doubt Afena-Gyan doubled the lead in stoppage time with a sumptuous curled strike from outside the box, prompting jubilant celebrations all around.
