Ghana international, Felix Afena-Gyan was the hero for U.S Cremonese on Tuesday night as he climbed off the bench to score a header and the winning penalty in the clash against SSC Napoli.

The crucial goal has helped his club to eliminate SSC Napoli from this season’s Coppa Italia.

For a player who has struggled for form since joining U.S Cremonese from AS Roma, Felix Afena-Gyan today was a second-half substitute for his club in the away cup match.

In the match, the visitors took a surprise lead in the 18th minute when Charles Picket equalised in the 18th minute.

Later in the first half before the break, goals from Juan Jesus and Giovanne Simeone turned things around for Napoli as the giants took a 2-1 lead into the break.

Thanks to the resilience of U.S Cremonese, the team forced the match to enter extra time courtesy of a late strike from Ghana striker Felix Afena-Gyan.
