Inter Milan latest teen acquisition Theophilus Awua started life at the Serie A club by posting two impressive performances for the Primavera team in games against Juventus and Torino.

Awua was on the losing side in his first game against Juventus at an invitational tournament, performing gallantly in the middle despite their 1-4 loss to Primavera side of the Old Lady.

Yesterday, he was among the spot takers against Torino after a 1-1 draw, which they later won 3-4 on penalties to finish as third at the tournament.

Signed from Serie B side Spezia on a season long loan deal, his performances could earn him a permanent deal next summer as Inter Milan have an option to make his deal permanent.

Rated by former England international John Fashanu as one of the brightest teen prospect in Nigeria, the 18 year old is a combative midfield, who can also play in an offensive role.
