Thomas Partey was named man of the match after Ghana’s hard-fought victory over Angola at the Baba Yara Stadium on Thursday afternoon. With Nottingham Forest’s Andre Ayew absent, the Arsenal midfielder led Ghana’s Black Stars as their captain.
Previously criticized by fans for not living up to his Arsenal form when playing for Ghana, Partey replicated his outstanding performance in today’s game, much to the delight of fans at the stadium and on social media.
Despite Ghana’s promising start, they failed to convert their chances, and the first half ended with no goals. However, Bournemouth’s Antoine Semenyo scored a late goal in added time to save Ghana.
Partey’s impressive statistics for the game included three key passes, 91 touches, one big chance created, one shot on target, seven ground duels won, three successful dribbles, and four tackles. He played at full throttle against the Palancas Negras, demonstrating his skills as a former Atlético Madrid player.
