Felix Afena-Gyan makes serie A comeback after injury

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghanaian teenager Felix Afena-Gyan made a cameo appearance for AS Roma in their hard-fought victory over Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.

A Tammy Abraham strike was enough to hand Jose Mourinho's side their second consecutive win in Serie A.

Afena-Gyan started the game from the bench and he was introduced late in the game after he replaced Rick Karsdorp in the 83rd minute.
