FIFA agent Oliver Arthur has paid glowing to the Ghanaian machinery which scouted, refined, and transferred the new kid on the block Felix Afena-Gyan to AS Roma.

This is meant to scuttle comments by Dutch scout Sebastien Arnesen that he spotted the player after just 10 minutes into a game he watched in Ghana.

But the facts remain that the player was picked by a local scout Gideon Attoh of ArthurLegacy Sports during an inter-schools competition in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The 18-year-old has hogged the headlines in recent weeks after scintillating displays for Jose Mourinho's side in the Italian Serie A.

Last week, he climbed off the bench to net a pair of goals which propelled Roma to a 2-0 win at Genoa.

Afena-Gyan becomes the first player born in 2003 to score in Italian top-flight.
