Black Stars goalkeeper, Richard Ofori has said that the team will miss Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan on Thursday, November, 12.
Partey sustained a thigh injury in a Premier League match against Aston Villa last Sunday and is expected to be out of action for some time.

“He is one of the best players in the team and one of the best players in the world. Definitely, we will miss him. But we wish him a speedy recovery so he can join the team in upcoming games”, Ofori said during a press conference.
“The most important thing is that anyone who wears the Ghana jersey is capable of delivering for the country,” he concluded.
