Asante, a former Manchester United triallist, has gained further inches in the Scandinavian country following his EA Sport FIFA 2016 simulation game confession on him as the second fastest footballer on the planet.
This becomes the second in the line after his club Stabaek IF asked EA Sport to use him for the cover for their covering entitlement in the game?s space.
His trademark celebration style of going down on his knees and observing a brief prayer moment dominated pictures used for the portraits.

?I?m really happy about this because it somehow means my performance for my club in the league is being recognized and that makes me happy,? he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
In the Norwegian Eliteserien, Asante has bagged 10 league goals and provided 12 assists for Stabaek ? managed by former United States and Egypt head coach Bob Bradley, who are second on the league and are vying to win the league title.
