Ebenezer Akinsanmiro, a 19-year-old Nigerian star, made history with Inter Milan coming on for his first Serie A debut on Sunday as they thrashed Lecce 4-0.

The talented midfielder registered one key pass and touched the ball 13 times in his 14 minutes of action.

Ballgist Nigeria reports that Akinsanmiro joined the likes of Obafemi Martins and Joel Obi as Nigerians who lifted the Coppa Italia trophy when Inter Milan defeated Fiorentina 2-1 last year.

This makes the youngster the third Nigerian to win the Italian FA Cup after the likes of former Super Eagles stars Obafemi Martins and Joel Obi.

Martins won it in the 2004-05 season and 2005-06 campaign during his early years with Inter while Obi was a winner in the 2010-11 term under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho.
