How Partey masterminded Atletico’s comeback with this ‘rocket’ shot [VIDEO]

 

Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey was in the thick of affairs as his Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid came from behind to score a last ditch winner and claim all three points against Athletic Bilbao.

Partey scored one, assisted another and played in an indirect free-kick in added time which resulted in Diego Godin’s match-winning strike.

Atletico captain Godin was carrying an injury and ran away limping in celebration of his 91st-minute header.

Rodri had brought Diego Simeone’s side level 11 minutes earlier, cancelling out the second of Inaki Williams’ two goals for struggling Bilbao.

Atletico’s Thomas Partey earlier scored a long-range strike to level at 1-1.

The injured Godin only stayed on the pitch because his side had already made the maximum three substitutions and he could not be replaced.

He hobbled into the box to contest a late free-kick and converted the winner from close range, with the goal initially ruled out for offside but then awarded via the video assistant referee.
