Partey stars at right back as Atletico Madrid edge AS Roma

Thomas Partey proved his versatility by playing at right back for Atletico Madrid in their 2-0 win over AS Roma in the Champions League to keep their qualification hopes alive.

And the Ghana international did not disappoint in the makeshift role for the Spanish side.

He kept on surging forward-occasionally-and delivering quality passes inside the box.

The 24-year-old has been making waves this season and has been linked with a sensational move to French giants PSG.

Second half goals from Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro breathed life back into their campaign of advancing to the knockout stage.

Partey was selected to deputize for the injured Juanfran.
