Serie A | Genoa 0-2 Roma: Felix brace ruins Shevchenko debut

It was crawling towards a goalless stalemate at Marassi, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s strike disallowed due to a Tammy Abraham handling offence, then the Armenian and Eldor Shomurodov wasted several chances.

Rui Patricio and Stephan El Shaarawy combined to prevent Stefano Sturaro giving Genoa the lead.

However, Felix Afena-Gyan came off the bench to transform the game with his angled drive on a Mkhitaryan assist, then curled a stunner into the far top corner from distance.

The Ghanaian is the youngest player to score a brace in Europe’s top five leagues this season and the youngest to score two for Roma in the three points for a win Serie A era.

    Messy looking game, dreadful weather. But two very nice goals. I hope this young guy can keep it up.
