Ghanaian youngster Joseph Paintsil featured for Genk as they suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Napoli in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

The 21-year-old lasted the entire duration of the game with scintillating performance at the Stadio San Paolo.

A first-half hat-trick from Arkadiusz Milik and a late Dries Mertens penalty secured a comfortable vicotry for Carlo Ancelotti side as they progressed to the round of 16 stage of the Champions League.

Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Salzburg in the other contest of the evening means that the Azzurri finished behind the current Champions League holders in Group E.

Napoli could now face a tough second round draw with PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Juventus and Barcelona already confirmed as group winners.
