Italy have capped Ghanaian youth talent Emmanuel Gyabuaa Manu in the ongoing Euro U19 qualifiers.
Gyabuaa, who is on the books of Atalanta, climbed off the bench on the 64th minute mark to replace Juventus starlet Nicolo Fagioli as the Young Azzurris eased past Cyprus 2-0 on Saturday.
The 18-year-old has been one of the fastest rising talents in Italian football and is tipped to become of the best midfielders in the coming seasons.
He has now joined the ranks of the few African players who have played for Italy at youth and senior levels.
