Ghana youth international midfielder Alfred Duncan came off the bench to play for UC Sampdoria in their smooth 2-0 away triumph over AS Roma in the Italian Serie A on Monday night.

The 22-year-old on-loan Inter Milan midfielder climbed off the bench in the 63rd minute to take the place of Spaniard Pedro Obiang as Sampdoria won the tie to urge closer to an European finish.

After spurning a number of chances in the first hour, Rudi Garcia’s side were undone by goals from Lorenzo De Silvestri and Luis Muriel as their faltering Serie A form continued.

Francesco Totti was recalled to the starting XI after missing the Europa League draw with Fiorentina due to injury, while Radja Nainggolan was forced to sit out through suspension. Sampdoria, meanwhile, replaced Afriyie Acquah with Roberto Soriano and Muriel with Stefano Okaka.

With Acquah missing from the Sampdoria midfield, it was Duncan who was expected to fill in the void in a defensive midfield but he had to start from the bench.
