Thomas Partey signed off to join his Black Stars teammates in Qatar for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon with a breathtaking performance in the Premier League match against Manchester City.
Despite the 2-1 lost, the deputy Black Stars captain dominated the midfield in the high-intensity new year clash.
Partey was selected as Man of the match after the game, but wasn’t happy of his team which was leading in the first-half by Bukayo Saka goal, and all of a sudden lost the match.
