Arsenal concern as Partey forced out of Ghana friendly just moment before kickoff

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey was ruled out of Ghana's international friendly against Brazil on Friday just moments before kick-off.

Partey had been named in the starting line-up.

He was set to start for the Black Stars ahead of their clash with Brazil in France.

But, just a few minutes before kick-off he was forced to withdraw after picking up a knock in the warm-up.

Mallorca star Baba Idrissu stepped in to replace the Arsenal man, but Ghana did not disclose any information about the potential issue.

The fresh injury blow could mean that Partey is now a doubt for Arsenal's huge derby against Tottenham next week.
