Ghanaians Abroad: Partey quiet, Kudus struggles as Nuamah scores for Lyon

Olympique Lyonnais' Ernest Nuamah impressed despite his side's 4-1 thumping at the hands of PSG, grabbing the consolation goal for Lyon

This weekend saw mixed fortunes for Ghanaian footballers across Europe’s top leagues. Here, we delve into their performances:

Premier League

  • Thomas Partey (Arsenal): A late substitute for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Wolves, Partey had minimal impact with just seven touches in his ten minutes on the pitch.
  • Antoine Semenyo (Bournemouth): Introduced in the 63rd minute with his side trailing, Semenyo couldn’t turn the tide. The forward managed two shots (one on target) but lacked cutting edge (xG: 0.12).
  • Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace): A positive cameo from Ayew after coming on for goalscorer Michael Olise. He won four ground duels and made a tackle and interception in a dominant 5-2 win for Palace.
  • Mohammed Kudus (West Ham): A rare off-day for Kudus as West Ham were hammered 5-2 by Crystal Palace. The midfielder struggled defensively, losing possession 14 times and winning just two duels.

La Liga

  • Iñaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao): Despite scoring an early own goal, Williams put in a decent shift for Bilbao. The winger took four shots and made key defensive contributions.
  • Abdul Mumin (Rayo Vallecano): A solid defensive display from Mumin helped Rayo Vallecano secure a 2-1 win. The centre-back made clearances, interceptions and showcased his passing range.
  • Iddrisu Baba (Almería): An unused substitute for Almería in their 2-1 defeat to Villarreal.

Serie A

  • Caleb Ekuban (Genoa): Despite his side losing 1-0, Ekuban put in a lively performance. The forward created a big chance and won his aerial duels.
  • Ibrahim Sulemana (Cagliari): A composed display from Sulemana in midfield for Cagliari as they drew 2-2 with Juventus. The midfielder showcased his defensive solidity and wasn’t dribbled past.
  • Alfred Duncan (Fiorentina): Duncan played a key role in Fiorentina’s 2-0 victory, winning duels and maintaining good passing accuracy.


  • Patric Pfeiffer (FC Augsburg): A disappointing cameo from Pfeiffer after coming on as a substitute. The defender struggled defensively and misplaced passes.
  • Christopher Antwi-Adjei (VfL Bochum): Introduced in the second half, Antwi-Adjei saw yellow for a foul and lacked accuracy with his passing.

Ligue 1

  • Nathaniel Adjei (Lorient): A resilient performance from Adjei despite Lorient’s 3-0 defeat. The defender made key clearances and interceptions and impressed with his passing.
  • Salis Abdul Samed (RC Lens): An unused substitute in Lens’ 1-0 win.
  • Ernest Nuamah (Olympique Lyonnais): Ghanaian winger Nuamah grabbed the consolation goal for Lyon in their 4-1 defeat to PSG. Nuamah impressed with his all-round play—scoring, creating chances, dribbling effectively, and maintaining high passing accuracy.
