Abu Dhabi, November 5 / WAM / Last March, and while many waited for the Nigerian national football team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after a goalless draw in the first leg at the Ghana national team stadium in the decisive final round of the qualifiers, the Ghanaian team turned the table on its Nigerian host in the second leg and snatched a card Qualifying with a 1-1 draw.
The real star in this match was Thomas Partey, Arsenal midfielder, and the Ghanaian team, who surprised the hosts with an early goal that confused all accounts, and the Nigerian team became required to score at least two goals in order to qualify.
But the Nigerian team scored one goal from a penalty kick, while Barty led his comrades, who is the mainstay in the Ghanaian team.
To a real epic in tactical performance, to come out with a 1-1 draw, which was enough to return to the World Cup after being absent in the 2018 edition in Russia.
Partey, who scored this very important goal, confirmed that he is the main trump card in the Ghana national team and an icon of its success.
During the current season, Barty continued his brilliance with Arsenal and played with the team 9 matches so far in the English Premier League, in which he scored two goals.
Barty is considered one of the most prominent elements that Arsenal relied on in his successful career in the English Premier League this season, and his position at the top of the table.
Despite the presence of many stars in the Ghanaian national team, such as Jordan Ayew and Muhammad Quddus, Barty remains the player who grabs the spotlight in most of the team’s matches and is highly relied upon in his next World Cup participation.
Barty, 29, started his career with the Ghanaian national team in 2016, and has so far played 40 matches with him, scoring 13 goals.
However, his participation in the 2022 World Cup will be his first in the World Championship due to the absence of the Ghanaian team from the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Barty is looking forward to continuing his brilliance with Arsenal this season in his career with Ghana in the World Cup and leading him to the knockout stages of the World Championship.
