Ghana forward Felix Afena-Gyan presented his AS Roma jersey to Minister of Youth and Sports Mustapha Ussif. 

The 19-year-old helped Ghana qualify for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar after joining the team for the playoff against Nigeria.

Afena-Gyan started both games, giving problems to the experienced defence of Nigeria consisting of Leon Balugon and William Trost-Ekong.

He was part of the group that met Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House on Wednesday in Accra.

After spending time with the President, he then met the Minister in the company of his agent Oliver Arthur.

Felix Afena-Gyan is having a breakthrough campaign in Italy after he was promoted to the senior side of the Giallorossi by Portuguese gaffer Jose Mourinho.

The teen sensation has scored two goals in 14 Serie A games for AS Roma as he continues to enjoy game time in the Italian topflight.

On Tuesday, Thomas Partey scored for the Black Stars in the opening minutes of the game before Nigeria were awarded a controversial penalty after Ademola Lookman was adjudged to have been fouled by Dennis Odoi.

Captain Trost Ekong scored from the spot-kick to get the equalizer from the Super Eagles.

Napoli striker Victor Oshimen scored again for the home side but the goal was ruled out by the VAR for offside.

The Black Stars held the Nigerians to a 1-1 draw to secure passage to the World Cup to be staged in Qatar.
