Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey was on target for Diego Simeone’s side in their UEFA Champions League 1-1 draw against Qarabag on Tuesday night.
The Ghanaian international scored with a lovely goal to rescue a point for his side who failed to beat Qarabag at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
Partey received a pass from French international Antoine Griezman just outside the eighteen yard box and beautifully slotted in the ball in the post to level things up for the Los Rojiblancos.
The goal was a significant one as it made Thomas the first African to ever score a UEFA Champions League goal for Atletico Madrid.

The unsatisfactory draw at home means Chelsea and AS Roma are poised to progress to the last sixteen with Atletico falling to the UEFA Europa League.
