Amartey's Leicester knocked out of Champions League by Partey's Atletico Madrid

Daniel Amartey’s Leicester City were knocked out by Thomas Partey’s Atletcio Madrid in the quarter-final clash of the UEFA Champions league on Tuesday evening.

Diego Simeone's men were typically efficient in Tuesday's return leg, Saul Niguez's first-half header gave the visitors the lead, but after 45 minutes of play Jamie Vardy's smashed home to bring the Foxes to tie.

With the 1-0 first-leg victory courtesy of Antoine Griezmann's controversial penalty, Thomas Partey’s side will stage another semi-final.

22-year-old Daniel Amartey replaced captain Wes Morgan, who sustained an injury in the 84th minute, but his presence was not enough to give the English Champions a convincing victory

His Black Stars teammate Thomas Partey failed to make an appearance but his team held on to book a semi final berth for the third time in four years.
