PARTEY- THE FIRST GHANAIAN TO WIN THE UEFA SUPER CUP TROPHY

Energetic midfielder, Thomas Partey became the first Ghanaian to have lifted the UEFA Super Cup trophy as Athletico Madrid defeated rivals Real Madrid by 4 goals to 2.


Partey replaced debutant Thomas Lemar with the game heading to extra time after a two all draw. He took his chance as he set up the third goal on the 98th minute. 

Eventual winner of the Tallin bout, Partey became the third Ghanaian to have played in the Super Cup. Ibrahim Tanko and Samuel Kuffuor lost out previously on the coveted silverware in 1997 and 2001 respectively. 

Partey won the 2018 UEFA Cup with Diego Simeone's side in Lyon earlier on in the year.
