Thomas Partey has been included in Ghana’s squad for the World Cup.
The Arsenal midfielder scored a vital play-off goal against Nigeria in March to secure his country a place in Qatar but he’s not featured since due to various injury issues.
Partey has netted 13 goals in 40 appearances since making his debut in 2016; a decent record in front of goal compared to the threat he poses on the club front.

The Black Stars play Granit Xhaka’s Switzerland in a friendly in Abu Dhabi on Thursday before opening their World Cup against Portugal on 24 November. They also face South Korea and Uruguay in the group stage.
This will be Ghana’s fourth appearance in the tournament and they’ll be hoping to better their best showing in 2010 when they reached the quarter-finals.
