Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey has achieved a milestone, making his 100th appearance in an Athletico Madrid shirt in the club's 1-0 win over Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish La Liga on Saturday.

Thomas Partey achieved this milestone on Saturday as he came on in the 36th minute where the Ghanaian international replaced Juanfran who was stretched off following a hamstring injury at the right back position.

The 25-year-old then played as a right back to the final whistle of the game as Antoine Griezmann strike from a flicked header gave Athletico Madrid all three point which was their first win of the season in the Spanish La Liga.
