    The Bianconeri midfielder plays the full 90 minutes as the Black Stars confirm their place in this summer’s finals with a 7-3 aggregate playoff win over Egypt

    Kwadwo Asamoah became the latest Juventus player to secure his spot in this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil after helping his native Ghana to tonight’s 7-3 aggregate triumph over Egypt.

    The Black Stars looked odds on to book their tickets for a third successive World Cup appearance after roaring to an emphatic 6-1 victory in the playoff’s first leg contested on home soil in Kumasi.

    And, despite slipping to a 2-1 defeat in this evening’s return encounter, their advantage ultimately proved insurmountable.

    The final outcome means that Asamoah, who played the entire 90 minutes, will be able to look forward to an exciting summer ahead as part of the greatest show on earth.
