Johan Vásquez scored a goal in his Genoa debut against Sassuolo.

He took advantage of a corner kick hung by Nicoló Rovella. He beat the goalkeeper with an accurate header to run to celebrate with the fans of the Marassi stadium in Genoa.

Johan Vásquez had a dream debut this Sunday in the Italian Serie A (First Division), scoring a 2-2 goal in the 90th minute for his team, Genoa, at home against Sassuolo.

His target allowed Genoa to finish a comeback from 0-2 to 2-2, after Gianluca Scamacca, a former home side, scored a double for Sassuolo.

Signed in the last summer market from Pumas, Vásquez, who will turn 23 on October 22, debuted as a starter in coach Davide Ballardini's line of three and put the icing on a performance of excellent character with a great goal.

He took advantage of a corner kick hung by Nicoló Rovella. He beat the goalkeeper with an accurate header to run to celebrate with the fans of the Marassi stadium in Genoa, one of the most traditional and charming coliseums in Italy.

Vásquez, part of the Mexican team at the last Tokyo Olympics, had been on the bench for 90 minutes in Genoa's last five league games and had not been called up in the previous two.

His big game may change his prospects at the club in his first season in Italian Serie A.

In the first half, Mattia Destro and Vásquez's header allowed Genoa to emerge from relegation, albeit only thanks to the better goal difference than Cagliari. The latter is still in the red zone.

Vásquez is the second Mexican to compete in this Serie A after Hirving "Chucky" Lozano, who plays for Napoli.
