EGYPT midfielder Ahmed Hassan has become the most capped footballer in international history, notching 179 appearances.
The Zamalek player, who is 36-years-old, came on as a sub against Niger in a friendly in Doha to move past retired 178-cap men Saudi Arabian goalkeeper Mohammed Al Deayea and Mexican defender Claudio Suárez.
Hassan, who has scored 32 international goals since his debut against Ghana in December 1995, said: “My career with Egypt is not over yet.
“Some people said I carried on playing with the national team to reach a personal achievement, but this is completely untrue.”
