Ghana forward, Felix Afena-Gyan has won his first trophy with AS Roma.

The Italian Serie A side defeated Feyenoord by a lone goal in Tirana on Wednesday night to win the maiden edition of the UEFA Conference League.

Nicolò Zaniolo’s 32nd-minute was enough as Jose Mourinho's men lift the trophy.

Afena-Gyan played three matches in the Conference League and was on the bench for the final.

His teammates completed the task, however, and the 19-year-old was quick to join in the celebrations, even doing a little dance with Tammy Abraham.

With this victory, Jose Mourinho became the first manager to win the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League.

The Portuguese manager is also unbeaten in five European finals.

Afena-Gyan will now turn attention to national team duties as he is expected to join the Stars for the start of their AFCON 2023 qualifiers.
