How Thomas Partey met his clone in Ghana

Thomas Partey and his unnamed lookalike in Ghana

Fans were tickled when Arsenal ace and Ghana international Thomas Partey met his lookalike just before the first leg world cup play off against Nigeria at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Footage showed the player next to someone who struck a huge resemblance to the 28-year-old, with his team-mate Kofi Kyereh posting the video on his Instagram story.

The clip shows Partey decked out in Ghana training gear with his arms around his lookalike, who is wearing the Arsenal warm-up top.

Supporters on social media chimed in with just how similar the pair looked. One said: “When you’re popular you’ll surely find your look alike.

Another wrote: “Nah this guy looks more like Thomas than Thomas.

Another asked: “How is it even possible?”

One quipped: “If this guy goes to Arsenal camp I swear they will think he is partey and start him in a match.”

Partey, who claimed the club’s player of the month gong for February, has been enjoying a fabulous period for the north London side this year. He played exceptionally well against Leicester earlier this month, a match in which he scored the opening goal before hitting the woodwork.

Partey who was impressive in Black Stars first leg World cup play-off tie against Super Eagles last Friday despite the goalless draw, will be dreaming of a table turning out in Tuesday return leg, dream which some say could be dead on arrival as Super Eagles  have vowed to put in 100% effort at the MKO Abiola Stadium.
