Posted by

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has withdrawn from Ghana’s squad for the International friendly game against Nicaragua due to an injury.

Thomas Partey was due to start for Ghana against Brazil on Friday night. However, he pulled out of the game and was replaced by Baba Iddrisu after he felt discomfort around his knee during warmup.

A report after the game stipulated that Partey’s exclusion was precautionary and he’s expected to be available for the game against Nicaragua on Tuesday.

In the latest development, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed that Thomas Partey has left Ghana’s camp and has returned to Arsenal for further assessment.

Arsenal will hope the situation wouldn’t keep Partey out of the clash against bitterest rivals Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturday, October 1. The Ghanaian has proved to be key for the Gunners when fit.

Meanwhile, the Black Stars will depart France for Spain on Sunday for the second International friendly game against Nicaragua.

The Black Stars are hoping to make amends after losing 3-0 to Brazil at the Stade Oceane in Le Harve on Friday night.

The game is scheduled for 18:00 pm on Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at Estadio Francisco Artés Carrasco based in Lorca.
