Ghanaian teen, Felix Afena-Gyan, has dedicated his Serie A debut victory to his mother, after featuring in AS Roma's comeback victory over Cagliari.

The 18-year-old was handed his debut on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, as the Giallorrosi fought back from a goal down to defeat Cagliari at the Sardegna Stadium.

"I thank everyone, I dedicate my debut to everyone who supported me and is still supporting me. I than the club and everyone in Rome. My mum who is in Ghana, mum I love you," said the striker after the game.

"I love my agent, my club and my teammates and I thank everyone," added the youngster.

He earned his place on the pitch in midweek when he replaced Matias Vina in the 57th minute with his trailing by 1-0 courtesy Leonardo Pavoletti.

Lorenzo Pellegrini scored a wonderful free-kick and provided the assist for Roger Ibanez, as Roma overturned the scoreline.

Afena-Gyan demonstrated glimpses of his quality after he stepped onto the pitch.

His intelligent runs and brilliant hold-up play will surely be a delight to Jose Mourinho who watched the game from the stands due to a touchline ban.
