Musa Juwara helped Bologna come from behind to win 2-1 at Inter Milan on Sunday in a pulsating Serie A game that saw both teams reduced to 10 players.
Juwara, 18, came on in the second half to cancel out Romelu Lukaku’s opener before Musa Barrow scored the winner 10 minutes from time.
“I really want to thank the coach for showing me that trust against Inter,” the 18-year-old Juwara said. “I’m really happy to score my first goal, which I want to dedicate to my family and all those who’ve helped me on my journey.
“The coach deserves the praise for this win. This is a dream for me and a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life.”
Juwara started his career with the youth setup of Virtus Avigliano before he joined the Chievo academy in 2017, where he spent two years.
The Gambian forward teamed up with the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara outfit last summer, joining the U19 team, and his impressive showing in the youth team has seen him play six times for the first team.
Juwara will hope to be consistent with his performances for a chance to feature for the Gambia youth team.
