Partey on scoring for Ghana

On switching positions in the course of the match

On whether he is comfortable in an advanced role or defensive role
Everywhere on the pitch where I can help in the national team, I am ready to sacrifice. I don’t mind defending, attacking. Every time I have to play for Ghana, I don’t mind sacrificing and playing in every position
On how to prepare for the reverse fixture on Tuesday
I think the last South Africa game, unluckily most of the players weren’t able to go and we lost. But today we did our best but we have to enjoy today and think about Tuesday.
