Cremonese carries the great Avena Gian, eliminates Napoli and Osimhen from the Italian Cup

A magical evening for Felix Avena Gyan, who allowed Cremonese to make a comeback and eliminate Napoli from the Coppa Italia.

The leader of the Italian championship fell on Tuesday evening, against the bottom of the league. In an incredible encounter, Cremo managed to advance to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

The fairy tale was made possible thanks to two Africans, David Okerek and Avenia Jayan. The first, a 25-year-old Nigerian, held Cremonese at the start of the match, when he outwitted the Partenopi defense before providing an assist to Charles Bickle (18) for the opener.

Behind, Juan Jesus equalized for Napoli in the 33rd minute, before Giovanni Simeone (36) sent the Azzurri up 2-1. Things were going well for Napoli to qualify quietly, until Okerek was replaced by Avenia Gyan.

In the 65th minute, the 19-year-old Ghana international equalized with an 87th minute unstoppable helmet shot, giving Cremonese hope again. This is his second goal this season after two matches in the championship. This sent both teams into overtime.

Entered during this stage (102), Victor Osimhen (Serie A’s top scorer with 12 goals) could do nothing to save Napoli. Grigiorossi finally beat Partenopei 6-7 on penalties. When Stanislav Lobotka missed his shot, Avina Gyan delivered the knockout blow that sent Napoli home and Cremonese to the Coppa Italia quarter-finals.

On loan from Roma last August, Avena Gyan will meet his coaching club on February 1 in the Italian Cup quarter-finals. A meeting between the young Ghanaian black star player and his friend, the Portuguese coach of the Gelorossi, Jose Mourinho.
