The 19-year-old came on in the second half to replace Stephan El Shaarawy and went on to score the opening goal of the game.

This is the first pre-season game Afena-Gyan has featured in, having been granted an extended break after playing in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers in June.

The Ghanaian also recently signed a long-term contract with Roma after making 25 appearances in all competitions for last season and scoring two goals.

Meanwhile, Premier League side Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Afena-Gyan before the summer transfer window closes.

Eagles manager Patrick Vieira is said to be a huge fan of the teenager and is ready to splash between €10 million and €12 million to bring the player to South London.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Di Marzio reports that Crystal Palace want Afena-Gyan to beef up their attack ahead of next season.
