Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey took Ghana’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying clash with Congo Brazzaville to equal ex-international Yaw Preko’s record for the West African giants.
The 24-year-old was the star of the afternoon as he grabbed a treble at the Stade de l’Unité in Brazzaville.
The last time Ghanaian player scored three times in the jersey of the Black Stars was ex-winger Yaw Preko 23 years ago.
In June 2014, Swansea City star Jordan Ayew scored a hat-trick for Ghana during a pre-World Cup friendly against South Korea.
But Partey’s performance on Tuesday has lifted him level to Preko.
