Young Ghanaian striker, Felix Afena Gyan, scored the only and decisive goal for AS Roma when they hosted Sassuolo at the Trigoria park on matchday 2 of Italy’s Primavera 1 championship.
After an intense, entertaining first 45minutes produced three yellow cards, Felix Afena-Gyan gave Roma the breakthrough when he broke the deadlock in the 59th minute to register his first goal of the season.

Gyan’s goal against Sassuolo secured Roma their second consecutive victory of the season whiles ensuring that they’re the only side yet to drop points after matchday two.
Sassuolo featured two other Ghanaian footballers. Midfielders Salim Abubakar and Justin Kumi were in action for the Neroverdi. Abubakar played the entire duration of the game while Kumi was introduced in the 60 minutes.
