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.

The 42-year-old for Anderlecht and Fenerbache player netted a double brace against Eritrea on February 28, 1999.

His performance against Eritrea was a repeat of his scoring prowess against Niger 5 years earlier when he scored three goals for the Black Stars against Niger in a 5-1 triumph.

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.
