Thomas Partey Was “Useless” In Ghana’s Game Against Portugal : Countryman Songo


Sports journalist Patrick Osei Agyemang, popularly known as Countryman Songo, has described Thomas Partey’s performance in Ghana’s opening match against Portugal in the ongoing World Cup as abysmal.

According to the Host of Adom TV’s popular sports show Fire for Fire, the Deputy Captain and Arsenal midfielder was conspicuously missing in action and did not make an impact in the game.

During an interview with Paul Otchere Adom on Good Evening Ghana, Countryman Songo chided Partey and even went as far as labeling him as “useless” for not bringing out his full potential in Portugal’s 3-2 thrilling win against Ghana.

“Do you know Partey was a very useless player in the game?”, he said. “If you want to see Partey well in a game, you need to have a really good tackler or a game passer alongside him.”

“In the midfield, Otto Addo needs an alternate player who can help bring out the best in Partey. This is not an experienced coach because he cannot read the game or his opponent in order to make a change,” he stressed.

Ghana will on Monday play their second game against South Korea at the Education City Stadium. In their World Cup opener, Portugal clinched a 3-2 win over Ghana in a thrilling Group H encounter. Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal in front when he converted the opener from the spot after he was fouled by Mohammed Salisu (65). Ghana equalised against the run of play when Andre Ayew, their own veteran striker, fired home from close range (73), but Portugal immediately responded with quickfire goals from Joao Felix (78) and substitute Rafael Leao (80), both set up by Bruno Fernandes.
