Black Stars midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah was handed the Man of the Match accolade in Inter Milan's 0-0 draw to Udinese, making it disadvantageous in their chances of securing a Champions League promotion.
However, a victory would have moved Milan six points clear of fourth place Atalanta who were yet to play Lazio.
But the draw meant Atalanta closed the gap on Luciano Spalleti’s men to just 1 point, with 3 games to the end of the season.
Asamoah held his head high in a generally insipid Inter display, as he put in a decent shift at left back to emerge Man of the Match.
He’s expected to play a key role in Kwesi Appiah’s squad in the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt later this year.
