Ghana international Felix Afena-Gyan has scored his first goal for Cremonese in the Coppa Italia.

The 19-year-old who joined the club in the summer window from AS Roma climbed off the bench to announce his presence in the game.

Afena-Gyan was introduced in the 68th minute mark replacing Tommaso Milanese when his outfit defeated Modena 4-2 on home turf after extra time in the Coppa Italia Round 32 to progress.

Cremonese opened the scoring through David Okereke in the 77th minute before the Ghanaian attacker added the side second goal in the 84th minute mark.

But Davide Diaw hit a brace in the 89th and 90th minute to level pegging, forcing the game to extra-time.

Cremonese proved to be tough for Modena as Leonardo Sernicola scored brace in extra-time to make it 4-2 at the end of the game.

Since joining the club, Afena-Gyan has scored one goal in four appearances.
