Black Stars striker Felix Afena-Gyan became the first Ghanaian to win the maiden edition of the Conference League.

Nicolo Zaniolo scored for AS Roma in the 32nd minute which was enough for Roma to secure the trophy.

Afena-Gyan was on the bench throughout Roma’s encounter with Dutch side Feyenoord on Wednesday evening.

Striker Felix Afena-Gyan made three appearances for AS Roma in the Conference League. He played against Bodo/Glimt, Leicester City and Vitesse.

Felix Afena-Gyan will celebrate this major achievement which is his first in his professional career with his teammates and fans who have supported him after breaking into the Roma senior team.
