Ghana forward Richmond Boakye-Yiadom came off the bench to miss a penalty that cost Latina in a 1-0 home loss against Modena in the Italian Serie B on Saturday.

The 23-year-old had replaced Giuseppe Figliomeni at the Stadio Domenico Francioni at the break and he missed a penalty that cost Latina all three points.

With his compatriot Maxwell Boadu in action and Davide Luppi striking the opener for Modena on the 18th minute mark, Latina had the opportunity to restore parity for his side.

But the Juventus loanee missed his kick to the disappointment of the home fans.
