Afena-Gyan reacts to Cremonese victory

Sports Brief earlier reported that Ghanaian young striker Felix Afena-Gyan reacted after his heroic performance against the Italian heavyweights in the Coppa Italia.

Gyan came off the bench to score the equalizer in the 87th minute to force the match to extra time and also netted the winning penalty.

He was given his Serie A debut by Jose Mourinho at Roma last season, before he was sold to the 19th placed club in the summer, much to the surprise of Romans.
