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

Felix Afena-Gyan was involved in AS Roma’s journey to the final in the new competition created by UEFA.

Jose Mourinho led AS Roma beat Dutch side Feyenoord 1-0 to win their first major trophy since 1961.

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.
