Ghana international, Kwadwo Asamoah, has become the most capped African footballer in the Italian Serie A after making his debut for Cagliari.

Asamoah overtakes fellow Ghanaian player, Sulley Muntari as most capped African in Serie A history

The 32-year-old joined Cagliari as a free agent in January after parting ways with Inter Milan.

Over the weekend, he made his debut when he came on as a second-half substitute, replacing Joao Pedro in the 77th minute.

The Ghanaian chalked history with his latest appearance – his 271st – in the Italian top-flight to become the African footballer with the most appearances in Serie A, overtaking compatriot Sulley Muntari.
